Hungry hens rejoice - it's lunch time and there's Layers Crumble to peck at. Chickens love to peck and scratch at small bites that are scattered along the floor. Although this contributes to a healthy diet, it isn't a replacement for a good balanced meal. Suitable for newly adopted free range hens, the Natural Free Range Layers crumble from the Allen and Page Smallholder Range is a nutritionally balanced and complete feed. This feed resembles the feed they will have been fed throughout their working lives. The crumble will provide a smooth transition into their free-range retirement, avoiding stress or digestive issues. With high-quality Non-GM ingredients in the form of a crunchy crumble meal, this feed has been formulated to prevent selective feeding. It’s also Soya Free! Happy hens = healthy hens = healthy eggs. This is why it is so important that we feed hens the correct food, keeping them healthy and helping them to produce the best eggs possible.
With no artificial colours, this crumble is boosted with vitalising vitamins and minerals, including Calcium, which is brilliant for producing eggs with hard, strong shells. Omega 3 oil and Marigold petals have been added, which also contributes to the production of healthy eggs and lovely golden yolks. That's not all - this healthy feed is also drug-free with no hexane, produced in a drug-free mill. It contains Lysine and Methionine from natural sources; no synthetic amino acids are used. All of these incredible qualities packed into a bag of mouth-watering crumbly goodness - your hens are bound to go barmy for this feed. Top Tip! - Why not mix this delicious crumble with some hot water and turn it into a tasty warm mash? Perfect for warming their little tummies on a cold winter's day.
Provide this feed on an ad-lib basis, so that the birds can eat and freely and as often as they want. As a guideline, they will require around 100 - 150g per hen per day, all year round. To avoid wastage, tip the crumble into a feeder or trough. This will also help to prevent the food from spoiling. Because of the nutritious elements in this complete meal, treat such as Mixed corn should only be fed in the afternoon after your hens have eaten their complete feed, no more than an egg cup full for each bird. This feed should be fed with fresh water and grit should be made available at all times.
