Hello! As always, I am overthinking everything... But I still want to know what's best. I can get both the Nutrena and the DuMOR All Flock feeds from my TSC. I will be feeding this to my (future) ducks and (current) chickens. I have old hens and new layers at any given time.

I will probably still supplement lightly with nutritional yeast, just in case. Also grit and OS. They do not list niacin levels.

Please let me know what experiences you have had and which is better/preferred! Sorry for asking this so much haha! :lau

P.S. Sorry for the lopsided table graph, it wasn't cooperating. DuMOR is the middle column and Nutrena is the far right one.

Here they are side by side:

Nutrena I find to be a better quality feed. Purina makes Dumor for TSC, but they make it to TSC's specifications, not Purina's specifications. I prefer Nutrena over Purina, anyway.

Plus that calcium in the Dumor feed is as high as a layer feed. Part of the reason to feed an All Flock is so you're not giving way too much calcium to birds that don't need it, which would be anything that's not laying, like young birds, male birds, seasonal layer species that aren't laying right now, etc. The high calcium in the Dumor feed totally negates that.

Thank you! That's what I was thinking. I also prefer Nutrena!

Of the two, I would definitely choose Nutrena. As mentioned, the calcium in the DuMor is crazy high for an all flock. I use Purina all flock--Dumor starter/grower 20% when the Purina is out of stock. My TSC doesn't carry the Nutrena all flock as a stock item. Maybe I'll ask if they could.
