    I haven't heard of that brand. In addition to the nutritional analysis, what is the ingredients list?

    My local feed store sells a local brand of layer pellets that also has 20% protein. Right now, with several girls in a hard molt, I figure the extra protein compared to some of the bigger name brands, might help them out. Also, the thing I like most about the local feed is that the source of protein is animals vs. the soy that most of the others use. The salt content in yours looks a little high compared to mine, which has a min. of .25% and a max of .5%, though I am no expert on that. The calcium content of mine is also slightly higher. Other than that, the analysis of yours looks similar to mine. I've had my flock on it for 3 bags now and they seem to be doing fine.
