    Hey everyone!
    Currently I have one rooster and two hens, we plan on getting more hens in the summer time and I was wondering what type of feed people use for the hens to get great eggs! Currently we are feeding tractor supply dumor layer pellet. And scratch. We got our chickens in the fall so we are relatively new to this. Any advise is good!!! Thank you!

    I think a lot of folk feed 16% protein layer pellets or layer crumbles. Not sure if they brand matters.
