    i wanted to try the crumbles its 1% higher in protein. says its a maximum percent egg production and egg size we will see how it goes. just bought it today so i will give it a try. i have been feeding them the layer mash all along but have noticed they waste alot when eating it so this should help.

    I noticed with mine eating the Blue Seal layer crumbles, they don't seem to need any oyster shell and their shells come out perfect, maybe it has extra calcium in it?

    If you want less waste put them on pellets. They tend to eat them all and you can see what is not eaten better. Any left behind i just leave for them to clean up and they do.
