I have been keeping hens for over 10 years and have always fed them Omlet organic pellets with Omlet grit and a little Omlet corn in the afternoons, plus small treats of sunflower seeds etc. I have never had any problems until now. Two of my three 18month old chickens are laying soft shelled/shell less eggs. Help please! Has the formula changed?

Omlet Says: Hi Sue,
Thank you for your message. Usually, this phenomenon could indicate a lack of calcium. You could try to feed them mixed grit, or to try the following: take some shells from boiled eggs, cook them again to clean them, and then grind them. Add that to the food. The chickens should then get the extra calcium needed.
Please don't hesitate to contact us by email or by phone for any further advice.

This is better value than the individual pack if you take into account the delivery charge. But either way, my birds LOVE it. Their egg production went up and they are much more friendly and contented. Happy birds, happy owner!!
Well done OMLET!
My four not-so-old hens stopped laying for a while. I knew they liked Omlet food as we'd used it before a while back and hoped it might pep them up a bit. WELL! I don't know what it is about the food...maybe they just prefer the smaller crumb? ...but we're back to 2 eggs a day. Not cheap but its clearly worked a treat on my gals - thank yoouuuuuu!
Excellent product. It is a shame that delivery costs are considerable. Able to get similar or exact products with either much lower delivery costs or free even.
pleased with purchase fo quality and value.
Chickens love it and the eggs are more regular and taste fab too
I would not feed my hens anything else. The only problem is the delivery charge which would be prohibitive if I were on a budget.
My chickens thrive on these excellent layer pellets. It keeps them healthy and they produce lovely rich, creamy, dark brown eggs. Would recommend this product.
I've always used organic layers pellets but my current batch of hens weren't too keen on it, preferring corn instead, which they'd go mad for. I tried Omlet's food instead and the hens loved it from day 1. They gobble it down and are now producing more and larger eggs. They even turn their noses up at the corn treats now! Although they are eating more, which means I have to buy more food, this is offset by the lower price than the organic pellets I was buying (which have shot up in price recently).
My hens love Omlet organic feed. I ran out and had to make an emergency purchase of another brand and my hens actually preferred to wait to eat until their Omlet feed arrived. There was a bit of a mix up with the delivery company not leaving a note to say they had failed to deliver, and not advising me that they thought the package was damaged so they returned it to Omlet. As soon as I contacted Omlet and it became clear that this had happened, I was sent a new delivery immediately, which arrived within 48 hours. Omlet customer service is absolutely brilliant.
