Chickens are somewhat omnivorous and voraciously opportunistic. They'll eat anything from grain to bugs, and even animal products depending upon how small the pieces are. Additionally, they require a varied selection of nutrients in order to not only lay eggs but lay eggs that are nutritionally dense.
Chick starter and grower feed- These feeds are packed with calories - especially from healthy protein - to assist your chicks grow swiftly, bolstering their immune systems and boosting their general health. Grower feed is important for suitable weight and fast growth for robust, healthy chickens.
Layer feed- Completely stabilized for healthy hens laying eggs on a routine basis, layer feed has a different dietary composition that consists of more calcium to promote proper egg creation in newly laying hens.
Flock raiser- This feed supplies balanced nutrition when you have a combined flock of poultries. Flock raiser feeds excellent, basic nutrition to all type of chickens without the optimized micronutrient profiles of the other kinds of feed. Simply put, it's just less complicated to use and still provides excellent nutrition.
Crumble and pellets- Poultries tend to choose small pellets and crumble to bigger pieces of food - they're just much easier to consume! Crumble is usually the key presentation of flock raiser food, as it's easy for chicks and chickens alike to consume and digest.
Shell grit- Included in layer feed, shell grit has two purposes - one, it assists the gizzard break down food effectively, and 2, it includes additional calcium to your chicken's diet. Calcium is necessary for proper nutrition regardless, but it's especially crucial for egg-laying chickens.
Corn- Cracked corn isn't a great feed - it's calorie-dense but not big on nutrition. No matter, it's a nice treat for your chickens, it's really inexpensive and in a pinch, it can be used to feed your poultries if you've got absolutely nothing else on hand.
