Healthy chickens lay tasty eggs, and you get healthy chickens from top quality chicken feed. Finding the ideal feed with the proper nutritional balance is vital and the professionals at Cheshire Cat & Dog Too in Cheshire are here to assist you.
Chickens will consume anything from grain to bugs, and even animal products depending on how small the pieces are. Additionally, they need a varied selection of nutrients in order to not only lay eggs but lay eggs that are nutritionally dense.
Chick starter and grower feeds are loaded with calories, specifically from healthy protein - to help your chicks grow, strengthening their immune systems, and enhancing their general health. Grower feed is crucial for healthy chickens.
Layer feed has a different nutritional composition that consists of more calcium to stimulate proper egg creation in newly laying chickens.
Flock raiser provides a balanced nutrition when you have a blended flock of chickens. It's much easier to use and still provides fantastic nutrition.
Crumble and pellets are commonly the primary presentation of flock raiser food, as it's easy for chicks and chickens alike to consume and digest.
Shell grit has 2 objectives - one, it helps the gizzard break down food properly, and two, it includes extra calcium to your chicken's diet. Calcium is needed for proper nutrition regardless, but it's specifically vital for egg-laying chickens.
Cracked corn isn't a great feed - it's calorie-dense but not big on nutrition. Regardless, it's a nice treat for your chickens, it's rather inexpensive and in a pinch, it can be used to feed your chickens if you've got absolutely nothing else handy.
