- This feed may be used as an aid in the prevention of coccidiosis where immunity to coccidiosis is not desired.
- The first day the birds arrive, you may wish to scatter some feed on a newspaper so they can find it more easily.
- Provide a 1 gallon waterer fount for every 25 birds.
- Allow 1 inch of feeder space per bird for the first 2 weeks. From 3 to 6 weeks, increase feeder space to 2 inches per bird and 3 inches per bird after 6 weeks.
- Clean and place feeders and waterers before the birds are put under the brooders. Initially place feeder and waterer directly on the floor.
- A good rule of thumb is to have the feeder and waterer height even with the back of the birds to reduce feed waste and avoid contamination with droppings.
- Keep feeders and waterers full the first week. Then reduce the amount in the feeder until approximately half full. Keep waterers and feeders clean. Disinfect waterers weekly.
- Increase the feeder size and number of feeders and waterers as birds reach 4 to 5 weeks of age.
Feeding schedules and feeding amounts differ depending on the age of your birds.
- Feed continuously as the sole ration to replacement chickens from day old until the onset of lay
- Provide plenty of fresh, clean water at all times
- Free-ranging hens will supplement their diets with insects, greens, and anything else they find that is palatable
Flock raiser feed, layer feed, and broiler feed are just a few of the many different kinds of chicken feed. Chickens will need varied kinds of feed depending on their age, health, and intended purpose.
The average mature chicken needs more than a pound of food each week. Country Road Chick Starter-Grower Medicated can be purchased in a 10 lb. bag.
The best place to store your chickens’ food is a dry area with a cool temperature. A warm, moist environment encourages mold. Keeping chicken feed in the original bag may be the better option, but it's best to store it in a metal bin to avoid rodents. It is not safe for birds to eat leftover food, which can become rancid and moldy if it is added to a feed bin. Also, clean up spills so free food can't attract other pests.
