Does this have oyster shells or adequate calcium in the mix? (Can the calcium be picked out as in oyster shells mixed with the product or is it blended?)
Answer by ChewyAug 28, 2019
This food contains approximately 3.5%-4.5% Calcium content. It may be fed as a sole ration on a free choice basis to laying hens. On average, you can expect layer hens to consume about 1/4 pound per day. Roosters can be fed the same as hens. Always provide shelter and a continuous supply of fresh, clean water. Full nutritional benefits will take effect in your chickens and their eggs after 10 days of feeding Eggland’s Best Chicken Food as their sole ration.

When searching for Non GMO chicken feed, I received this as one of my results but I did not see it anywhere on the bag contents. Is this Non GMO feed?
Answer by ChewyNov 12, 2019
This product is not compliant with the Non-GMO Project Verified standards. The manufacturer offers a similar product, the "Eggland's Best Organic Layer Mini-Pellets Chicken Food", which is Non-GMO.

Something Fishy Here …

This feed is perfect. It smells great opening the bag and the chickens like it a lot. The shells are great and the egg yolks are rich in color. So what’s the problem? The smell of the cooked yolks is completely disgusting. The eggs have a strong fishy odor and my customer and family complain. The high omega 3s and my brown and green/blue eggs laying chickens do not go together at all. I didn’t notice as I usually pick the white leghorn eggs to eat myself but people started to mention that the eggs smell rotten. It was tougher to notice when baked with but just a fried eggs smells and tastes like I fried up some fish in the pan before using it to fry the egg. It’s really gross. I’ll be switching feeds.

Chickens like 'em

Nice small pellets that drop easily in feeders. My birds ate them faster than the larger pellets

good stuff!!!! a little pricy but the girls love the smaller pellets. Much better than crumbles. Again, a little pricy but good stuff.

Great pellet feed

I used this feed this past breeding season for my pigeons. The breeders willingly ate this with no issue. All birds were healthy and I had nice healthy squabs.

Waste of money.

My chickens won't eat it. It just sits in the pan until it denigrates.

Scissor beak chicken...

I have a scissor beak silkie hen. She's small in size due to being a silkie, plus her beak makes it hard for her to eat like a normal chicken. I needed a cleaner feed besides crumbles since she makes a mess of her face. Then I found these mini pellets!! They are perfect size for her! All my silkies eat the same food and have been eating this for almost a year. They are in good health with good eggs! I'm thankful for these MINI pellets and that Chewy carries such a large bag...and delivers right to my house. Thanks Egglands and Chewy❤

Chickens don't like it

I bought this a few times for my chickens and they really don't like it. Im not sure why. I bought it because I thought it would be better for them.

Great chickens actually like it

My chickens are super picky. They only eat a specific brand and my local place has not had it due to the current events. Bought this and was like they will just have to eat it. They actually like it, so its my new feed for them
