After baby chicks or developing young pullets reach about 4 to 6 months they’ll lay their first eggs and become laying hens. This is an exciting process if you’ve been patiently waiting for your first eggs from a flock of birds. That being said, it’s important to make sure they have the appropriate nutrients to maintain a healthy rate of laying. Laying hens work hard to keep up that egg production, and it can be taxing on their body if they don’t have sufficient vitamins and nutrients in their diet. 50 Lbs Organic Layer Mash Chicken Feed is an excellent feed that’s also packed with calcium and other nutrients to promote regular egg production and healthy laying hens.
It’s also important that you switch your young pullets to a diet that’s less protein rich than what they may have been eating as chicks. Be sure you’re feeding your laying hens properly to support their egg laying production! We only offer this particular organic feed in a 50lb bag, but if you are in need of Organic Layer Feed options in smaller sizes check out our USDA Certified Organic Layer Mash Feed or USDA Certified Organic Layer Pellets from McGeary Grains.
