    Hi everyone! This is our first try having Chickens. So far we have RIR, GL Wyandotte, Bantam and White Leghorn. Lesson 1 learned Bantams are very sensitive we lost 2 out of 3 :(... Everyone else seems very healthy.

    Question: Any suggestions on what brand to feed the chickens when they get older for the best eggs?

    Thanks for the help!

    I alternate between Purina Layena and my local feed store's layer pellets.
