    This is the only brand of feed that my local feed store carries. I like to support local businesses, but I'm wondering if it's any good. It's the same price as Kruse's sold
    down the hill. Anyone seen it or used it? I give my birds yogurt, BOSS, greens, egg yolks (I eat extra whites), plus other healthy scraps each week.

    Sorry, not familiar with that type. [​IMG] But the protein for your laying hens should be 16% and according to that, it is.

    Not familiar with it, but it seems fine to me. Has the same or similar levels and ingredients most commercial feed has.

    The protein, fat & fiber are fine for layers, but IMO there seems to be alot of fillers 11+% ash ??? way too much and soybean is a poor filler product. WTS it seems to be a run of mill standard layer feed, I hope it is affordable.

    Quote:This is why I say it is just like any other commercial feed. Personally I look down on and hate all commercial feed, but for the time being it is my only choice besides the free ranging diet my girls and boys get. This summer/fall I'm hoping some crops and gardens will change that permanently though.

    I haven't seen it either, but it does look just like regular commercial feed.

    Why not feed Organic?
