    Which is better and why? I have chickens and turkeys (boys and girls of both) and currently feed Flock Raiser crumbles. The All Flock is available in pellets.

    Hi there - a very interesting question, so I googled! Both brands are owned by the same company- Cargill.
    From what I read, I really don't see much difference between the two. On a personal note, I use Nutrena feather fixer for my flock. After I started using it I noticed a definite improvement in feather sheen.

    I use Purina Flock Raiser, which also comes in pellets. It's 20% protein and it seems to get the hens through the molt faster. Some are even continuing to lay while molting, which didn't happen in previous years when I kept them on layer feed (16% protein).

    I haven't used the NatureWise All Flock, but did notice from the label that it has less protein (18%) than the Purina Flock Raiser (20%).

    Where do you buy the Flock Raiser in pellets at? I've checked Purinas website and have only seen it offered in crumbles.

    I get it at my local feed store (E&L Supply) in Spring Mills, PA. Check with your feed store. If they carry Purina products, it's very likely they can order the pellets for you.
