Organic Soy-Free Layer Feed has a minimum of 17% protein and are used to help your chickens lay strong healthy eggs. You can start using this feed for hens around 16 weeks of age.
This feed is formulated to be used as the only source of food for your egg layers or you may also use it to supplement a pasture-based diet. This formulation has a minimum of 17% protien and 2% crude fat with a maximum of 8% crude fiber.
A good rule of thumb is that each mature egg layer eats about 2 ½ lb of food per week.
So, if you buy feed every 4 weeks, you will need the following amounts of feed:
- 25 lbs of Starter: Feeds 2-3 Chicks
- 50 lbs of Starter: Feeds 4-6 Chicks
- 75 lbs of Starter: Feeds 7-8 Chicks
- 100 lbs of Starter: Feeds 9-10 Chicks
