Poultries are rather omnivorous and voraciously opportunistic. They'll eat anything from grain to bugs, and even animal items relying on how tiny the pieces are. Additionally, they need 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 loaded with calories - particularly from healthy protein - to aid your chicks grow rapidly, strengthening their immune systems and improving their total health and wellness. Grower feed is critical for suitable poundage and quick development for durable, healthy poultries.
Layer feed- Perfectly balanced for healthy hens laying eggs on a normal basis, layer feed has a different dietary structure that includes more calcium to promote proper egg production in newly laying chickens.
Flock raiser- This feed provides well balanced nutrition when you have a mixed flock of poultries. Flock raiser feeds wonderful, basic nutrition to all manner of chickens without the enhanced micronutrient profiles of the other kinds of feed. Simply put, it's simply easier to use and still gives fantastic nutrition.
Crumble and pellets- Poultries often tend to choose small pellets and crumble to bigger pieces of food - they're simply easier to consume! Crumble is often the primary presentation of flock raiser food, as it's very easy for chicks and chickens alike to consume and digest.
Shell grit- Included in layer feed, shell grit has 2 purposes - one, it helps the gizzard break down food properly, and two, it adds extra calcium to your chicken's diet. Calcium is essential for appropriate 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 poultries, it's rather economical and in a pinch, it can be used to feed your poultries if you've got absolutely nothing else handy.
