FEED, ANYONE? The basis of any good chicken diet is a high-quality feed. Feed provides those fluffy feathers with the right amount of protein and minerals to keep their health in tip-top shape. And it keeps those eggs comin'. (Can you say bonus? I mean, we can. And we do.)
Vitamins, nutrients... everyone needs them from their food source. Including our chickens.
SCRATCH: Chickens gotta scratch. And peck. Giving your hens great quality chicken scratch keeps 'em healthy and makes healthier eggs for your family, too. That's a total win.
GRIT? WE'VE GOT IT. When's the last time you saw a chicken tooth?
Grit takes the place of what teeth do... it grinds and crushes the food in the gizzards. Your birds should always have some on hand. Chickens will self-regulate their grit intake, so no worries about overdoing it. But if they need some and can't get to any, they may end up with digestive problems.
SHELL: Hens go through a pretty amazing process building those eggs, and oyster shell helps out at a very specific point. The shells are built last, usually overnight - and the process can drain your chicken of calcium. The calcium in oyster shell is digested at a different rate than that found in their feed, so they have some extra during those night hours when they are creating shell.
