    My family and I have been raising chickens for 6 months now. We are well aware that we do not need a rooster fro them to have eggs
    because our girls are producing everyday without a Rooster. have one gentleman that is telling me that it because of the layer pellet
    that I'm feeding, that they are able to lay without a Rooster. Please educate me..

    Whoever is telling you that has no idea what they're talking about. Roosters only fertilize eggs - Hens lay them no matter what.
