Feeding Directions
  • Poultry should have access to clean, fresh water at all times. When starting day-old birds or after moving or transporting birds, provide access to water before putting feed in the feeders.
  • When birds have access to coarse litter or whole grains, an insoluble grit should be fed. Limit intake of grit to 1 pound per 100 pounds of feed or 2 pounds per 100 birds per week. Grit can be blended with their regular ration or offered free choice in a separate feeder.
  • Do not allow feeders to run empty or stale feed to accumulate.
  • Never feed any feedstuffs that are moldy, musty or suspect in any way.
  • Oyster shells may be offered free choice to laying birds.
