Additional Information

Layers pellets or mash?

Pellets are the most common choice for back gardens and small free range egg producers. Pellets are less wasteful and flow well through most feeders.

Mash may be more palatable to some birds and can be useful for weaning pullets used to mash on to pellets by mixing the two. Our Novo Brown pullets have been fed on coarse grained layers mash from 16 weeks old to point of sale.

Feeding Guide

Offer on an ad-lib basis from point of lay. Layers feeds do not require any additional limestone or oyster shell grit. The diet is fully balanced for optimum egg production, consistent shell quality, good yolk colour and excellent egg size.

Hybrids need encouraging to eat layers pellets or mash. The best way to do this is to feed them every morning giving them just one days feed (about 130 grams per bird). When you feed them the following day there should be just a little feed left in the feeder. If it is still half full you are giving them too much. If it is pecked clean you are not giving them enough. Chickens like the interaction of being fed and like to see new feed appear. If a hopper is always full no new feed will appear and they will get bored with it. Feed intake may be reduced which will result in poor production. On commercial farms birds are fed small amounts several times a day to encourage them to eat enough layers feed. If you are giving birds mixed corn or other treats give it to them in the afternoon or evening so as to allow time for them to eat the desired amount of layers feed.

There will be no harm done if birds are occasionally given several days feed in a hopper when going away for a few days. Someone should look in on birds daily to make sure there are no problems.

Hybrids such as Novo Brown require high levels of protein (at least 15% of their total intake). They also have a limited appetite so it is important that they mainly eat a quality layers feed. Ideally they should be encouraged to eat layers pellets or layers mash and nothing else. Mixed corn can be fed as a supplement usually by scattering a few handfuls on an area of dry ground to encourage their natural behaviour. It is not advisable to feed hybrids vegetables, kitchen scraps or bread as they will tend to eat less layers pellets and not get the necessary protein intake. This can result in small egg size, reduced egg production and birds may stop laying completely. DO NOT FEED CHICKENS GRASS CUTTINGS, apart from having very little protein it can go sour in their crop and stop them from eating at all.

Store feed in a cool dry place.

Fresh, clean water should be available to the birds at all times.
