The following are just suggestions and should always accompany access to free-choice chick grit and fresh water: access to vegetation whether fresh or dried; our herbal supplement to offer many varieties of fresh Greens, Fruits, & Flowers.

 

The foundation of this feed is that of whole grains; therefore, poultry usually consume less than that of a conventional feed. Furthermore, the amount your flock eats daily will primarily depend upon the access they have “outside the coop,” as well as, housing (i.e., chicken tractors vs. fixed housing). 

 

Start with about 1/8 cup per chick, duckling, or gosling twice daily. For turkeys, you can begin with 1/4 - 1/2 cup per bird, depending on housing and age. Observe them during feedings and often during the day. Continue to watch them and adjust amounts as they grow, as their consumption will increase. 

 

As a supplemental feed: Mix completely into your feed bag at the following rates: 

5 lb. bucket per 25 lb. feed bag

10 lb. bucket per 50 lb. feed bag

 

As a treat: Feed as needed to add variety and nutrition to diet, as well as promote scratching and pecking.

We use this as a complete feed in conjunction with our Greens, Fruits, and Flowers. Our chicks are raised inside during the early spring months when it is still too cold for them to be outside. We begin with 1/8 cup per chick in a large feeder twice per day. This amount will adjust as they grow and temperatures allow us to move them into chicken tractors outside, occurring at around 5 to 6 weeks of age in Georgia. Occasionally and with change, observe them during feeding times for about 20 minutes to make sure they are finishing their meal. If they finish in less time, you might need to bump up the amount; likewise, if they are not finishing in the allotted time, you might need to decrease the amount. Always make any adjustments slowly and in small quantities. 

These are just estimates and based off of our personal experience; the amounts will fluctuate according to use. Remember, our products are not only designed for your flock, but for you; so whether we are helping you feed, supplement, or treat - we can enrich any feeding plan. The price estimates below do not reflect shipping and handling, as they fluctuate and must factor in circumstances that vary among buyers (i.e., distance, shipping method, etc.).  

 

To feed one bird, 1/8 cup per bird, twice daily it would cost about $0.29 per day on the purchase of a 10 lb. bucket. The cost would fall to about $0.25 per day if you were using a 20 lb. bucket. For one bird at this feeding rate, there are about 90 servings in a 10 lb. bucket and about 180 servings in a 20 lb. bucket. 

 

We realize this cost may be out of reach for some, but we design our products with every farm in mind. We use the highest of quality ingredients; however, we pay a premium to do so. The good news is you can control the cost by utilizing the option to supplement your already established feeding program - just toss us into your feed bag and voila! To further reduce the cost, offer us to your flock as a beneficial, healthy treat - the possibilities are endless!
