Organic Broiler with Corn

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

Product Description

Organic Broiler with Corn is a Non-GMO Project Verified and Certified Organic chicken feed designed for use with growing meat birds. We use a blend of Pacific Northwest grown whole grains from Certified Organic farms throughout the region.

After four weeks on Naturally Free Organic Starter, it will be time to switch your meat birds to our Organic Broiler with Corn feed, specially formulated to provide optimal nutrition for healthy and natural growth. At 19% minimum protein, this feed is designed with the bird’s optimal nutritional requirements in mind. The resulting product will be high quality, delicious, and very healthy! We recommend a minimum 9 week growth cycle.  Scratch and Peck Organic Broiler with Corn works well for both hybrid and heritage breeds.

Transition your broiler chicks from our Naturally Free Organic Starter to Organic Broiler after 4 weeks of age. 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 plenty of fresh water and grit.

Feel free to supplement their daily feed ration with either Organic 3-Grain Scratch or Organic Scratch n’ Corn. To promote a better conversion ratio and to help ensure that your birds are receiving the maximum nutritional value of their feed, consider the following mixture of grit and wheat.

Jeff Mattocks. “True Grit: the Lowdown on an Important Avian Supplement” APPPA Grit Issue 58 July-August 2010
“Consider offering whole wheat in a separate feeder mixed with grit, in a ratio of 4 parts wheat to 1 part appropriately sized grit. This will encourage the birds to eat more, increase feed availability and cut down on your prepared feed expense. You should not see any decrease in weight gains or feed efficiency. The birds love it! This can be started with turkeys at 8 weeks, broilers at 5 weeks and layers throughout summer when on good range as they will all balance their own diets pretty well.”

You can further boost nutrient availability by fermenting your flock’s feed.

Do you have a Broiler Starter Feed?
Our Naturally Free Organic Starter feed is used for all chicks. Transition your broiler birds to the Organic Broiler with Corn after 4 weeks.
Can I feed Organic Broiler to my turkeys?
This is a tough call; the birds and their dietary requirements are both quite different and a few of the ingredient levels vary by quite a margin between our two feeds.

Here are a couple differences to consider: the turkey feed contains three times the level of fish meal than the broiler feed and less than one half the amount of calcium. The turkey feed also contains nearly twice the amount of corn which is a good source of energy for both chickens and turkeys.

In general, we recommend using the species specific feed for each type of bird but understand that this is not feasible for some farms.

Do you produce a Naturally Free Organic Broiler Feed without corn?
No, broilers grow so quickly that the energy from carbohydrates in corn is very important.
What is the shelf life of Organic Broiler?
Unlike many pelletized feeds, our feeds are whole grain and contain no preservatives. We recommend a 6-month shelf-life.
