Chickens are rather omnivorous and voraciously opportunistic. They'll eat anything from grain to insects, and even animal items depending upon how small the pieces are. Additionally, they require a diverse range of nutrients in order to not only lay eggs but lay eggs that are nutritionally thick.
Chick starter and grower feed- These feeds are packed with calories - especially from protein - to assist your chicks grow rapidly, strengthening their immune systems and boosting their overall health and wellness. Grower feed is vital for suitable weight and fast development for durable, healthy chickens.
Layer feed- Flawlessly balanced for healthy hens laying eggs on a normal basis, layer feed has a various nutritional make-up that includes more calcium to encourage proper egg creation in newly laying hens.
Flock raiser- This feed provides well balanced nutrition when you have a mixed flock of chickens. Flock raiser feeds wonderful, basic nutrition to all manner of chickens without the optimized micronutrient profiles of the other kinds of feed. Simply put, it's just simpler to use and still provides excellent nutrition.
Crumble and pellets- Chickens have a tendency to favor tiny pellets and crumble to bigger pieces of food - they're merely simpler to eat! Crumble is commonly the main presentation of flock raiser food, as it's very easy for chicks and poultries alike to eat and absorb.
Shell grit- Included in layer feed, shell grit has two objectives - one, it assists the gizzard break down food correctly, and 2, it includes extra calcium to your chicken's diet. Calcium is needed for correct nutrition regardless, but it's specifically crucial for egg-laying chickens.
Corn- Cracked corn isn't a great feed - it's calorie-dense but not big on nutrition. Regardless, it's a nice treat for your chickens, it's really affordable and in a pinch, it can be used to feed your poultries if you've got absolutely nothing else accessible.
