Feeding Directions

Feed Homestead Turkey Starter continuously as the sole ration until the birds weigh about 15 pounds. Around 15 pounds body weight, then switch to Homestead Chick Starter/Grower as the sole ration to help prevent leg issues. 

  • Poultry should have access to clean, fresh water at all times. When starting day-old birds or after moving or transporting birds, give 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.

Homestead Turkey Starter is formulated specifically for poultry and should not be fed to other species or to poultry in large commercial operations where a more customized diet would be more appropriate.
