The best feed for laying hens is layers mash or pellets as this provides the correct levels of protein needed for optimum growth and egg production. Corn is a nice treat for hens but should not be the main part of their diet. Greens (kale/lettuce etc) are good, nutrient rich treats to help give them a complete and balanced diet. Fresh water should always be provided.
