Sorry, I thought all feed manufacturers put the feed label on the website.
I've never bought a feed (other than a custom blend from a local mill) that didn't list all the ingredients and guaranteed analysis.

Here's the ingredients and analysis from the feed tag of Home Grown Layer 16% which is made by Purina so I imagine the ingredients are pretty similar to Layena.

I do know that flock raiser is an all vegetable feed. No animal products.

This is one of the feeds I currently use the label from the Nature's Grown website is identical to the one on the bag.

Here's the feed tags of all Nature's Seasons feed with all the ingredients.
http://www.americanagco.com/documents/Poultry_Game_Bird_Program.pdf

I just looked at an old tag from Purina Start & Grow and it has complete ingredients listed.

Here's the tag from MFAs feed

Buckeye concentrate label
http://www.buckeyenutrition.com/media/137741/40_pct_poultry concentrate.pdf

As I said, I've never seen a bag of feed without ingredients listed.
When a mfg. doesn't put the ingredients on the web, that tells me they change from time to time. They will still be on the bag though since the formula is programmed in at the mill and they'll have the mfg. date, lot number, analysis, ingredients and feeding instructions.

Some feed Mfg's cheap out on there website and don't post ingredients.
For me that's a major down fall, just like not having animal proteins in there poultry feed.

By law all feed bags must have a ingredients list and guaranteed analysis unless it is your own custom mix.

Mazuri go's above and beyond the call of duty..
IMO This is what should be found on all feed mfg web site for every feed.


Exotic Gamebird Starter 5637

Description
Exotic Gamebird Starter is a complete feed specially designed to meet the nutritional
needs of young ornamental pheasants and other birds with similar feeding patterns. Mazuri
Gamebird Diets are designed for optimal growth rates, chick success, quality feathering, health
and longevity, and are not designed for meat production.

Features and Benefits
 Complete feed - One product contains all of the nutrients the birds require.
 High protein, balanced with essential amino acids - Promotes growth and feathering.
 Optimum levels of nutrients - Proper nutrient levels provide protection against cannibalism.
 Extruded particle - Highly palatable, easy to feed and minimizes fines and waste.

Extruded particles: ⅛” diameter x ⅛” length.

Guaranteed Analysis
Crude protein not less than .......................... 30%
Lysine not less than..................................... 1.5%
Methionine not less than ........................... 0.60%
Crude fat not less than ................................ 2.5%
Crude fiber not more than ........................... 6.5%
Ash not more than ............................... 9.0%
Calcium not less than ......................... 0.95%
Calcium not more than ......................... 1.5%
Phosphorous not less than ................. 0.90%
Salt not less than ................................ 0.10%
Salt not more than .............................. 0.50%
Moisture not more than.......................... 12%

Ingredients
Dehulled soybean meal, ground corn, wheat middlings, fish meal (menhaden), porcine meat
meal, dehydrated alfalfa meal, brewers dried yeast, glyceryl monostearate, soybean oil, calcium
carbonate, salt, dl-methionine, choline chloride, dicalcium phosphate, mixed tocopherols
(a preservative), cholecalciferol (vitamin D3), vitamin A acetate, manganous oxide, d-alpha
tocopheryl acetate (natural source vitamin E), zinc oxide, l-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (stabilized
vitamin C), niacin, calcium pantothenate, menadione sodium bisulfite complex (vitamin K), vitamin
B12 supplement, copper sulfate, riboflavin, pyridoxine hydrochloride, folic acid, calcium iodate,
thiamin mononitrate, sodium selenite, biotin.

Feeding Directions
 Feed free-choice to birds as a sole ration until chicks are fully feathered. Start with a small
amount on paper or cardboard to ensure all birds begin eating.
If an intermediate protein diet is desired during the growth period, use Mazuri

Waterfowl Starter (5641).

Wow, that is a fabulous analysis breakdown. They all have that information or they couldn't consider it a complete feed if they didn't know the amino acid, vitatmin, mineral and trace element content.
