    In another thread about a poor hatch, it was brought up that feed for a backyard laying flock is not the same feed for producing eggs for hatching, and could result in a poor hatch rate. I was wondering if those of you "in the know" could scan your nutritional analysis information off of the feed you feed your stock for producing hatching eggs and explain what is what and why. Thanks, and I understand if you just don't feel like it. Inquiring minds would like to feed the best possible for high hatch rates! [​IMG]

    edit to add, if you don't want to do a full nutritional analysis of your feed tag, could you answer one question for me?

    I am feeding Layena pellets... is that good for producing eggs for hatching?

    It is better recomended to feed a 20% protein or more feed to produce better results for hatching eggs. Protein improved the fertility in both the rooster and the hen.[​IMG]
