Features & Benefits

100% complete daily nutrition

Purina® Layena® layer feed provides the right balance of nutrients, vitamins and minerals your backyard hens need.

Research-proven feed

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.

Superior Nutrition

Optimum nutrition for healthy birds and delicious eggs
