    Hi, I am looking into getting some chickens and want to look at feed options first. I was wondering if Purina Layena Pellets Premium Poultry Feed is a good food?

    Welcome! I feed Purina Flock Raiser, with oyster shell separately. It works fine for birds of all ages. Layena is fine for layers, and the pellets aren't wasted as much. Any feed you buy needs to be FRESH, as in one month of age or less (dating on the bags) so the vitamin mix is still good enough. Depending on what's available at your feed stores, another choice might be better/ fresher. Mary
