    I have a feed mill about 15 miles away that mixes feed. My question is what do I need to have mixed for a good laying mash?

    I would get some soybeans, oats, cracked corn, wheat, and laying pellets.

    I have great success with:

    325# Ground corn
    185# Bean meal
    20# Akey layer 75 (Or whatever layer concentrate they use)


    Comes out at 21% protein & can be used for chicks, layers (With free choice oyster shell), roos & ducklings. A little alfalfa meal makes a nice addition without lowering protein levels also.
    Check out "Lionsgate feed recipes" on Google if you want complicated recipes.
