Chickens are rather omnivorous and voraciously opportunistic. They'll consume anything from grain to bugs, and even animal items relying on how small the pieces are. Additionally, they require a varied array of nutrients in order to not only lay eggs but lay eggs that are nutritionally thick.
Chick starter and grower feed- These feeds are loaded with calories - particularly from protein - to help your chicks grow rapidly, boosting their immune systems and enhancing their total health and wellness. Grower feed is important for decent weight and fast growth for robust, healthy chickens.
Layer feed- Completely balanced for healthy hens laying eggs on a normal basis, layer feed has a various nutritional structure that includes more calcium to encourage proper egg production in newly laying chickens.
Flock raiser- This feed provides balanced nutrition when you have a blended flock of chickens. Flock raiser feeds excellent, general nutrition to all type of poultries without the enhanced micronutrient profiles of the other sorts of feed. Simply put, it's just simpler to use and still provides fantastic nutrition.
Crumble and pellets- Chickens tend to like little pellets and crumble to larger pieces of food - they're merely easier to consume! Crumble is frequently the key presentation of flock raiser food, as it's easy for chicks and chickens alike to consume and digest.
Shell grit- Included in layer feed, shell grit has 2 objectives - one, it helps the gizzard break down food appropriately, and two, it includes additional calcium to your chicken's diet. Calcium is essential for proper nutrition no matter, but it's especially important for egg-laying hens.
Corn- Cracked corn isn't a great feed - it's calorie-dense but not big on nutrition. No matter, it's a nice treat for your poultries, it's really affordable and in a pinch, it can be used to feed your chickens if you've got absolutely nothing else available.

Even though my purchase was available online, i chose to support the community and try this local brick/mortar store. I'm very glad i did. Everybody was helpful. Service was quick. Prices were good. And, i found out they support local pet adoption groups and are hosting a "big event" on Sunday September 26th, 2021. Home delivery is even available. Nice!
