What to Feed your Poultry

We feed our day old chicks "Chick Starter" which is available from all good produce stores. We ensure that they have constant access to clean cool water. The chicks stay on "Chick Starter" for 6 - 8 weeks depending on growth rate which depends on the time of year. They then get fed "Poultry Grower" which is a similar product but in pellet form. When the chicks are about 14 - 16 weeks old we gradually shift them onto adult food. This consists of wheat, cracked corn and in winter a few grey (NOT black) sunflower seeds. They are old enough to start on kitchen scraps at this stage. In winter I cook them rice and give them soaked cats biscuits for the high protein levels that this product contains. This is especially good when the birds are moulting as feathers are primarily protein.

Organic home grown garlic (two full bulbs) plant each individual clove near a fence and the chooks will graze on the shoots thus helping to worm them.
