Chickens are somewhat omnivorous and voraciously opportunistic. They'll consume anything from grain to insects, and even animal products depending upon how little the pieces are. Additionally, they need a diverse variety of nutrients in order to not only lay eggs but lay eggs that are nutritionally thick.

Grower feed is vital for decent weight and fast development for durable, healthy poultries.
