    Is it nessacary to buy mineral sup, vite supplement, kelp, vite e, wheat germ oil, fish oil. I was wondering if all that was included in the layer ration? And I know if you get it out of balance you can cause a deficiency in another area. So is it to add supplements or not to add supplements? that is the question.

    just my opinion..and others have their opinions.

    I think supplements should be used sparingly..not as an every day thing.
    But are needed in times if illness, injury, or stress...(including harsh weather)
