Chicken Diet - Page 2 of 6 - LearnPoultry
Backyard chickens are becoming increasingly popular among urban and suburban dwellers alike. Not only is keeping chickens a fun way to connect with nature, but they also provide fresh eggs right in your own backyard. As you begin adding chickens to your home, it’s important to understand the basics of feeding them properly.
When you’re stocking up on chicken feed, choose food that is specifically designed for poultry health. Look for feed that contains essential vitamins and minerals necessary for healthy growth and egg production.
However, it’s important not to rely solely on purchased feed as supplemental nutrition should be provided in the form of greens and other treats like mealworms or cracked corn.
Supplementing your chickens’ diets with extra treats will help keep them happy and healthy while providing variety in their diet too!
