SOME HANDY CHICKEN FEEDING TIPS:
CALCIUM PLUS LIQUID OR POWDER - All chickens, regardless of how old they are, can benefit
from calcium supplementation. Young chicks require calcium for strong bone growth, while
laying chickens require calcium for egg production. Splayed legs are a result of a lack
of calcium in birds developing in the egg. CALCIUM PLUS should be a regularly used product
when raising chickens. Simply follow the directions printed on the bottle.
COCCI-CARE - Coccidosis spores live in the ground and chickens peck at the ground all day
long. Chickens can become infected with these spores if not treated to prevent the infection.
COCCI-CARE should be a regularly used product when raising chickens. Simply follow the directions
printed on the bottle.
From the day your chicks are hatched until roughly 3 1/2 months old, feed - CHICK STARTER CRUMBLES.
From 3 1/2 months to 4 months old, feed - CHICK STARTER CRUMBLES and OYSTER SHELL or GREY MINERAL GRIT.
From 4 months old and for the rest of their life, feed - HEN SCRATCH and OYSTER SHELL or GREY MINERAL GRIT.
FEEDING GUIDE FOR LAYING HENS:
Feed 10% HEN SCRATCH and 90% LAYING FOOD (Such as LAYING MASH, LAYING CRUMBLES or LAYING PELLETS) plus BIRD GRIT or OYSTER SHELL.
ALL CHICKENS, AT ALL TIMES, SHOULD HAVE AVAILABLE TO THEM A SOURCE OF CLEAN, FRESH DRINKING WATER
