    We have used Purina for them, but the place that sells Purina is a much further distance so we end up just sticking with the Blue Seal. No noticeable laying difference between them, and the birds ate them both just fine. I just don't like to drive far.

    Yes I keep a couple of bowls of oyster shells filled always. I see less shell bumps and defects when my hens can self regulate their own calcium. I also feed back eggs daily so they also get the shells too.

    We get a brand called 'Bar Ale'.
    It's all organic and great for our chickens.

    Here in Alberta, I buy Country Junction feed. It's non-medicated, and I buy it because it's fairly local, and much cheaper than the farm store.

    Do the roosters and/or young pullets eat it? That's the only reason I've been hesitant about putting a bowl out.

    Okay, I'll put it down! How long have you been feeding them this brand of feed? Have you ever bought anything different?
