Our Layer Feeds are designed to be the healthiest and most natural product available for your laying hens. This complete Layer ration is formulated in two ways; our Layer contains corn and our Naturally Free Layer does not contain corn. The grains are left naturally whole in this feed rather than highly processed into pellets.
This Layer Feed at 16% protein also contains 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.
Be careful not to allow your hens to put on too much weight as it can affect production if they get fat.
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 Soy 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. Check our feeding tips label which is stitched into your feed bag to ensure your ladies are getting all of the quality nutrients provided in our feed. Be sure to offer fresh water, plenty of grit and you can begin to supplement oyster shell.
