Finding the right food with the correct nutritional balance is critical, but the specialists at The Critters & Me in 1403 Agua Fria St are here to assist you to find the perfect food for your coop.
Poultries are rather omnivorous and voraciously opportunistic. They'll consume anything from grain to bugs, and even animal products depending on how tiny the pieces are. Additionally, they require a diverse range of nutrients to not only lay eggs but lay nutritionally thick eggs.
Chick starter and grower feed- These feeds are loaded with calories - especially from healthy protein - to assist your chicks to grow promptly, strengthening their immune systems, and improving their overall health and wellness. Grower feed is critical for decent weight and rapid growth for robust, healthy poultries.
Layer feed- Perfectly balanced for healthy chickens laying prompt a normal basis, layer feed has a various dietary structure that consists of more calcium to stimulate proper egg creation in newly laying chickens.
Flock raiser- This feed supplies balanced nutrition when you have a blended flock of poultries. Flock raiser feeds fantastic, basic nutrition to all manner of poultries without the maximized micronutrient profiles of the other kinds of feed. Simply put, it's simply much easier to use and still gives fantastic nutrition.
Crumble and pellets- Poultries often tend to favor tiny pellets and crumble to bigger pieces of food - they're simply much easier to consume! Crumble is often the main presentation of flock raiser food, as it's simple for chicks and poultries alike to consume and digest.
Shell grit- Included in layer feed, covering grit has two objectives - one, it helps the gizzard break down food properly, and two, it includes added calcium to your poultry's diet. Calcium is needed for proper nutrition regardless, but it's specifically vital for egg-laying chickens.
Corn- Cracked corn isn't a great feed - it's calorie-dense but not big on nutrition. No matter, it's a nice treat for your poultries, it's quite economical and in a pinch, it can be used to feed your poultries if you've got nothing else on hand.
