For the second stage of a growing laying hen's diet, Chick Grower/Finisher provides the nutrition needed for the chicks growing stages. It is easy to digest and consume in a crumble form. It contains a balanced amino acid profile of dl-methionine, l-ysine and l-thiamine to support the dynamic turn-over and growth of structural (bones, ligaments, and muscles) and protective (skin and feathers) tissues in the bird. This ration should be fed at week 8 until the first egg is laid and then a complete layer feed should be given to support optimal egg development.

This diet is fortified with Oyster Shells, Trace Minerals and Magnesium providing a hard egg shell. Our layer ration is also enhanced with l-lysine and dl-methionine to give birds the nutrients they need to produce plenty of wholesome and delicious eggs and promotes gorgeous feathering. Your flock will also be provided with Vitamin E and anti-oxidants for a healthy immune system.
Chicks need a wholesome diet filled with protein, l-lysine and dl-methionine for proper development. This ration also contains Amprolium for the prevention of Coccidiosis.
