Healthy chickens lay delicious eggs, and you get healthy chickens from top quality poultry feed. While you can purchase a huge bag of random food down at your neighborhood farm resource shop, you won't have any kind of idea if it's right for your brood or not.
Discovering the ideal food with the correct nutritional balance is important, but the professionals at The Grooming Place Pet Shop in 1713 Main Street are here to help you discover the excellent food for your coop.
Poultries are somewhat omnivorous and voraciously opportunistic. They'll consume anything from grain to bugs, and even animal products depending on how little the pieces are. Additionally, they call for a diverse range 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 - specifically from healthy protein - to help your chicks grow quickly, bolstering their immune systems and improving their general health. Grower feed is essential for good weight and fast growth for robust, healthy poultries.
Layer feed- Completely stabilized for healthy chickens laying eggs on a routine basis, layer feed has a different dietary make-up that includes more calcium to promote proper egg creation in newly laying hens.
Flock raiser- This feed provides well balanced nutrition when you have a combined flock of chickens. Flock raiser feeds fantastic, basic nutrition to all type of chickens without the enhanced micronutrient profiles of the other kinds of feed. Simply put, it's just much easier to use and still provides wonderful nutrition.
Crumble and pellets- Poultries tend to prefer small pellets and crumble to bigger pieces of food - they're simply less complicated to eat! Crumble is frequently 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 functions - one, it aids the gizzard break down food appropriately, and two, it adds added calcium to your chicken's diet. Calcium is necessary for correct nutrition no matter, but it's especially vital 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 very cheap and in a pinch, it can be used to feed your poultries if you've got nothing else on hand.
