I was looking for a Vitamin K supplement to give to my breeding cockerels & cocks and came across Interfarma that sells them as Gallo-K
They also offer Gallomin ("Enriched vitamins, minerals and amino acids for chickens & roosters") that includes riboflavin, Vitamin D and others that they suggest be given to "Breeding hens: Feed 1 tablet every 3-5 days".
I'm going to try both to go along with a regular low protein/high energy layer ration. 
Has anyone here used these products before?

Nope, I don't do pills to individual chickens - too much time and bother for me.   But here is the feed analysis from the All Flock pellet I'm using.  It runs about $13 to a little under $15 per 50# bag, depending upon whether or not it is on sale - which is quite often.   I have been getting reasonable production, good fertility, and pretty good hatchability.   You may have to enlarge the attached photo to be able to read it.   Is it missing anything?

I like that it has both grain and animal by products (meal). The animal based meal my be just a little bit, but at least it is in there.
