Poultry Feeds & Treats
The Perfect Balance for Your Poultry Palate
When it comes to your chickens’ diet, getting the right feed balance is important for their health and well-being. It is very tempting to spoil them and give them the things they go mad for, like spaghetti or bread, but is that good for them – possibly not!
For a nutritionally balanced diet, for laying hens, we advise all-day access to Layers Pellets and a daily treat of Poultry Corn. For 5 hens allow 1kg of pelleted food per day. Chickens only feed during daylight hours so no need for feed inside the house at night. For treats to prevent boredom, you can hang up some Pecking Blocks, a cabbage leaf or broccoli head, or some tasty Garvo Chicken Treats. Although giving your chickens an occasional treat will not harm them, we advise that their basic diet should consist of Layers Pellets in a purpose-made feeder and a Mixed Corn scatter-feed.
