Purina® Layena® layer feed provides all 38 nutrients laying hens need once they’re 18 weeks old and laying eggs. Feeding Purina® Layena® layer feed to your hens provides you with delicious and nutritious eggs that your family and community can enjoy. The exclusive Purina® Oyster Strong System strengthens eggshells with added calcium from oyster shells, Vitamin D and manganese. Our Crumbles are wholesome and balanced, supporting reproductive and overall health with no need to supplement. Purina® Layena® Layer Feed is available in pellets or crumbles. Pellets and crumbles include the same nutrition, so choosing between the two is a personal preference. Pellets are a great way to limit feed waste.
Features & Benefits
100% complete daily nutrition
Purina® Layena® layer feed provides the right balance of nutrients, vitamins and minerals your backyard hens needs
Purina® has been conducting poultry research for nearly a century. We have a flock of backyard birds at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center to help our nutritionists, feed formulators and flock caregivers evaluate our feeds before we put them on the market.
Oyster Strong® system
Oyster shell, Vitamin D and manganese for strong shells. Large-particle calcium breaks down steadily, making it available during the entire egg formation process, especially at night when birds aren’t eating, and eggshell development is critical.
Rich yellow yolks
Added marigold extract produces deep, yellow egg yolks.
Fertility and feathering
Enhanced with lysine, methionine amino acids and key levels of Vitamins A and D to help hens produce plenty of eggs and grow beautiful feathers.
Healthy immune system
Rich in antioxidants and optimized levels of Vitamin E. It also contains prebiotics and probiotics to support immune and digestive health.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO GIVE IT ALL YOU HAVE WHILE YOU HAVE THE CHANCE
My husband and I have been married for 11 years. He was born and raised in this community loving farming and ranching. I was raised in Spokane Valley and easily converted into a country girl. With generations of knowledge he started formulating his own animal feed for cows, chickens, and pigs. His feed became very well known throughout the community and our surrounding areas. We both had a dream of entrepreneurship, so we decided to create a store that could be a one stop shop for the community. Together with his knowledge of animals and my love for fashion, coffee and supporting local, we created the Golden Gem Mercantile. With our three boys, two dogs, cows, chickens and our horse we are going on our 5th year and enjoying every crazy minute of it.
