    Which feed brand do you all buy? I'm just curious. I've been buying Purina's Layena crumbles for 2 years and my chickens are healthier than they've ever been. I feed them in the mornings and in the evenings, and they devour it! So, what brand do you all buy? If I've left any brand out, just let me know!

    Here in the Midwest we have a brand called Sprout made by fleet farm. I feed their all flock and their non medicated starter grower.

    Okay, I'll add it! What do you like about it? Have you tried other brands before that? If so, why did you switch?

    I have only fed this brand for decades. I did try Dumor once but my birds wouldn't eat it. I used to feed a layer but switched to their all flock about 5 years ago and my birds do much better on it. I also can feed it to all my poultry which is much easier.

    I use layena, not sure if it's any better than du more but I can definitely get the layena fresher. Like a couple wks old fresh

    I use the Layena omega 3 for my chickens and ADM game bird feed for my quail/pheasants.

    I tried Dumor as well, my chickens' health plummeted in days. They were so draggy, and didn't lay well. That's when I switched to Layena.
    I've considered switching to an All Flock, do you offer your hens oyster shell if you are not feeding a layer feed?

    I feed layer and game bird both, with all the free oyster shell they can eat. They eat about a pint jar every couple or 3 wks

    From my own experience, Purina has been better for my flock. Dumor just doesn't have the quality Purnia does.

    I get DuMOR organic because it is the only organic feed that I can buy in bulk! My chickens like it and I haven't had any problems with it at all! I have also found it to be really fresh at my Tractor Supply which is a nice bonus.
