    hi
    I have three hens with only one laying what should I feed them because at the moment they are on layers pellets yet only one is laying !

    It could be as simple as changing from layer pellets to layer crumbles. I had to do that and went from 2 laying to 12 laying just last night. Sometimes they prefer crumbles to pellets.

    I use an all flock and give a dish of oyster shells. That way the one that needs calcium will be able to get it.

    Ditto, 18% all flock and oyster shells and grit on the side. I also crumble up all the egg shells and put it in the oyster shells dish.

    x3. An all-flock feed (Flock Raiser, for example) with separate oyster shell.
