Feed Homestead Layer as the sole ration to hens laying eggs. Provide a constant supply of clean, fresh water.
- Poultry should have access to clean, fresh water at all times. 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.
- Supplement of oyster shells may be offered free choice with the layer feed to provide additional dietary calcium to improve egg shell quality.
