Our Layer Feeds are designed to be the healthiest and most natural product available for your laying hens. While all of our products are soy free, our Naturally Free poultry feed line is both soy free and corn free.
Naturally Free Layer Feed contains a high amount of calcium and slightly lower protein levels than our Naturally Free Grower. The calcium is used by hens to produce strong eggshells and should only be fed to birds that are laying or will lay in the near future. The grains are left naturally whole in this feed rather than highly processed into pellets.
This feed is suitable for ducks, geese and all waterfowl.
Your hens should be approaching their full grown size at approximately 18-20 weeks of age. Begin introducing Naturally Free Layer gradually to allow for a slow adjustment to the new feed formula. This is more important when switching from a different type of feed such as crumbles or pellets as your chickens may not immediately know how to consume a mash style feed. Be sure to offer fresh water, plenty of grit and you can begin to supplement oyster shell at this age.
