    What is the best feed or feeds for laying hens during periods of high heat and high humidity?

    I would think it would be their regular feed they always get and do well on. As far as commercial feed, mine are fed layena and have been laying faithfully right through.

    Agreed, regular layer feed. I also add a bowl of chilled plain yogurt every other day or so, plus semi-frozen berries or other cold things, but mainly they just have their layer feed and oyster shell.
