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.
