    We buy a layer feed from our local Co-Op that is made locally that has 16% protein. It is offered 24/7 with oyster shell and water. They have a large run that also provides grit natually and are given treats that are "usually" nutritionaly benefical. They are often given the offer of free rangeing over about a half an acre in the corral but they rarely go more than 20 yards in any direction. Not sure why the previous flock couldn't wait to get out and do their thing.[​IMG]

    I just bought a bag of some layer crumbles from Farm and Fleet. Before that it was layer crumbles from TSC. I guess I don't pay much attention to the crumbles they get.
    I supplement their feed with squash, pumpkins, raw venison, and treats of corn and bugs.
