The Right Choice Of Feed

High quality feeds are crucial for raising healthy chickens and improve production of eggs. Here are some of the things worth considering before purchasing feed:

  • Many feed producers will provide cheap feeds but they usually offer hardly any nutrient and are not the best option for raising healthy chickens.

  • The easiest way to reduce chicken feed cost is to avoid waste.

  • Most of the chicken feeders on the market are really shallow, implying a lot of feed flows within the edge, creating unnecessary waste.

  • It is also crucial to make sure you equip yourself with sufficient knowledge regarding diet to raise healthy chickens.

  • Consider doing some research online or taking a look at several chicken raising books in the library to learn more about chicken nutrition.

  • If you are raising chickens in your backyard, make sure there is sufficient space for your herd.

  • Another important note to remember is that the bigger the herd, the more food  is needed to ensure every chicken has sufficient nutrient to grow strong and healthy.

  • It is also important to keep an eye on what your chickens eat as outdoor food may affect the chicken health.

  • However, do not stress yourself over this factor as often times, chickens will eat things that we do not see such as small seeds. It is virtually impossible to track everything your chickens eat.

  • The primary goal is to ensure your chicken is being fed high quality diet.

  • Consider talking to an expert at your local shop and ask for advise or recommendation based on your requirements.

  • If you are doubtful, you can make your own chicken feed although the process is much more labour intensive than buying feed from a store.

  • In conclusion, the goal is to raise healthy chickens by feeding them high quality feeds. Avoid any cheap feeds and consult an expert when in doubt.
