    Yes you can give it to them but it wont help them lay anymore than normal though...usually what makes the lay is lighting and meat protien!

    Quote:most feeds contain natural protiens that come from plants and grains that is found in the feed! Some feed you will find has some meat base products in it whether it is fish meal or pork meal any ways meat is used to make the feed. If possible you can top your feed that you have now with a cheap low protien dog/cat food this will give you that meat protien!
