    As I was comparing Layer Pellets for my hens, I found that the the best ones are a little different. One has less Lysine but more crude fiber and vis versa for the other. I was just wondering what is more important for their diet and producing of eggs. Thanks!

    Lysine is is the more important factor when it comes to egg production.
