    I think we may have posted about the same time this is from my previous post here: LOL

    If you are just feeding for eggs, a good brand all around layer formulated feed is sufficient with a side dish of calcium supplement/oyster shell or limestone grit.

    LOL I should have know they were lying to me when they told me the Poultry Maintenance had the laying pellets in it. I was kind of skeptical about it when he told me, but I didn't think to question it anymore. Note to self, don't ask the loader what all is in the feed, ask the more experienced workers in the front [​IMG] Of course the first red flag should have been when I asked if they had a vaccine to give to chickens to keep them from getting the pox and he told me if they get he pox to put some blue goo stuff on them because that's what he uses on his chickens that he fights [​IMG]

    There is a feed store near Lafayette that sells the Flockraiser pellets but for the last 4 months, the feed has been MOLDED!!! That's why I stopped doing business with them.

    Thanks, Jeff. Yes, I think we crossed each other. I think I'll head to Sac's this weekend and see what they have that is the Petrus Laying Pellets and get some Oyster Shell. BTW, My Primrose had what definately looked like yolk on her comb yesterday afternoon and something clear and dried sort of stiff on her neck. My hens always lay in the nesting box and I didn't find any evidence of a broken egg in there. They don't have access to anything that looks like yolk. Think she broke and ate an egg? If so, should I just wait and see if it appears to happen again? I usually get 3 eggs in that box each day, but have had a 1 egg day, which is what I had yesterday.
