Healthy chickens lay tasty eggs, and you get healthy chickens from high quality poultry feed. While you can get a huge bag of random food down at your local farm resource store, you won't have any concept if it's right for your brood or not.
Finding the appropriate food with the proper nutritional balance is critical, but the experts at Urban Tails Pet Supply in 2106 Lyndale Ave S are here to help you locate the ideal food for your coop.
Poultries are rather omnivorous and voraciously opportunistic. They'll consume anything from grain to insects, and even animal products depending upon how small the pieces are. Additionally, they require a varied variety of nutrients in order to not only lay eggs but lay eggs that are nutritionally dense.
Chick starter and grower feed- These feeds are packed with calories - especially from healthy protein - to assist your chicks grow quickly, reinforcing their immune systems and improving their overall health. Grower feed is essential for respectable weight and quick growth for robust, healthy poultries.
Layer feed- Flawlessly stabilized for healthy chickens laying eggs on a routine basis, layer feed has a various dietary structure that consists of more calcium to stimulate proper egg production in newly laying hens.
Flock raiser- This feed provides well balanced nutrition when you have a blended flock of chickens. Flock raiser feeds wonderful, general nutrition to all type of poultries without the enhanced micronutrient profiles of the other types of feed. Simply put, it's simply much easier to use and still gives excellent nutrition.
Crumble and pellets- Chickens tend to choose tiny pellets and crumble to larger pieces of food - they're simply easier to eat! Crumble is commonly the main presentation of flock raiser food, as it's very easy for chicks and poultries alike to consume and absorb.
Shell grit- Included in layer feed, shell grit has 2 objectives - one, it assists the gizzard break down food effectively, and 2, it includes added calcium to your poultry's diet. Calcium is needed for correct nutrition regardless, but it's specifically important for egg-laying hens.
Corn- Cracked corn isn't a great feed - it's calorie-dense but not big on nutrition. Regardless, it's a nice treat for your poultries, it's really inexpensive and in a pinch, it can be used to feed your poultries if you've got nothing else on hand.
