    or mix them together. To much of one thing is bad for them over time, I keep mine on flock raiser and add oyster shell on the side they can eat as they like , haven't had but 1 or 2 during a molt

    I was using the grain type too for my chickens and my first layer (sophie) ended up laying a shelless egg and then a lash egg, all while seeming to feel horrible. And this was after only 2 eggs... so I quickly switched to an organic crumble and haven't had the same issue with my other girls thankfully, although out of six only 4 lay. Poor sophie doesn't lay at all anymore.
