Naturally Free Organic Layer 18%

Our Naturally Free Organic Layer 18% is a Non-GMO Project Verified and Certified Organic product. We use a blend of grains grown by regional family farms. The grains are left naturally whole in this feed rather than highly processed into pellets. Naturally Free Organic Layer contains 18% protein and a high amount of calcium. 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.

Only available in 40 lbs bags through wholesale or your local retail store.

Product Description

Laying hens may encounter stages when extra protein is needed to support increased production or during molting seasons. During these times, the best solution is to use a complete feed with a higher level of protein and calcium to support what their bodies need.

Our Naturally Free Layer with 18% protein, as with all of our feeds, is a Certified Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified complete feed that is non-pelleted and kept in its healthiest raw form. Our 18% feeds contain more fines than our standard 16% feeds due to the extra macronutrients involved. For this reason, fermenting this feed, while not required, is a win-win solution to more nutrients for the animals using it.

This feed is suitable for ducks, geese and all waterfowl.

Your hens should be approaching their full grown size at approximately 20 weeks of age. Begin introducing Naturally Free Organic Layer 18% 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.

Refill feeders only after all feed has been consumed (til they “clean up their plates”). Trough feeders provide the best access to our whole grain feeds. Be sure to offer fresh water, plenty of Cluckin’ Good Layer Grit and you can begin to supplement oyster shell at this age.

You can also boost the nutrients by fermenting your flock’s feed. Browse our Helpful Guides for more resources on how to use our feeds to optimize your flock’s health.

Can I feed this to my ducks, geese, or other waterfowl?
Yes! Our Layer feeds can be fed to ducks and geese and are suitable for all waterfowl.
My birds aren’t laying this time of year. Is it okay to switch to Naturally Free Organic Grower instead of Layer for winter as they don’t need the added calcium/minerals in the layer?
Yes, you can, however, we recommend sticking with Layer feeds as your birds are large enough to process the additional calcium.
How much do laying hens eat?
You can plan on a hen eating about 1/3 pound of feed every day. This amount will depend on many factors including access to free range pasture, weather and occasionally breed type.
What is the shelf life of Naturally Free Organic Layer 18%?
Unlike many pelletized feeds, our feeds are whole grain and contain no preservatives. We recommend a 6-month shelf-life.
