Healthy chickens lay delicious eggs, and you get healthy chickens from top quality chicken feed. Finding the right feed with the right nutritional balance is vital and the professionals at Urban Tails Pet Supply in Minneapolis are here to help you.
Chickens will eat anything from grain to bugs, and even animal items depending on how tiny 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 packed with calories, particularly from protein - to assist your chicks grow, boosting their immune systems, and enhancing their overall health and wellness. Grower feed is crucial for healthy chickens.
Layer feed has a different dietary make-up that includes more calcium to encourage proper egg creation in newly laying hens.
Flock raiser offers a balanced nutrition when you have a combined flock of chickens. It's less complicated to use and still provides terrific nutrition.
Crumble and pellets are usually the key presentation of flock raiser food, as it's simple for chicks and chickens alike to eat and digest.
Shell grit has two 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 crucial for egg-laying hens.
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 nothing else on hand.

Urban Tails is my favorite pet supply store in the Twin Cities and here’s why: They are reliable, welcoming, and very well organized. I am always especially excited to see Sam inside, because they make genuine connections with customers, are greatly knowledgeable of the store/recommendations, and create an overall pleasant experience from welcome to check-out!
Super hard to find the brand my cats enjoy (farmina) and they had SO many different options available from them!! They seem to care about the quality of ingredients which is reassuring when shopping around. I will be going back and may even switch to exclusively shopping here for my pet supplies! Thank you so much.
Cutest store with a furry door greeter 🐱!
Lots of variety and nice staff.
Lola was kind, helpful, caring, and attentive and was very patient and generous with her time and explaining to me the various aspects of numerous dog bones available.
I greatly appreciated her manner and professionalism and it makes me want to come back and spread the word and continue to support this local neighborhood business.
This was an important visit for me because I recently lost a classmate and friend who died young and unexpectedly. He left his beloved dog behind and I wanted to give a nice quality bone to the surviving family and to his dog.
Also, I appreciate how Lola took the time to wrap the bone in light purple tissue paper which I did not expect her to be willing to do. So later, I wrapped the bone up in it and will present it to the family and dog today at my friend's celebration of life ceremony. She also introduced me to one of the store cats, Veronica, who I enjoyed petting.
Thank you, Lola, for making an important difference for me.
Sales happen frequently enough to keep me coming back, and the resident shop cats are very helpful 😜
