Country Heritage Feeds Chicken Starter Grower Mash is a broad spectrum ration specially formulated for young chicks and growing hens. Formulated using certified organic grains and protein meals; the Chicken Starter Grower is free from all forms of medication that may be found in other starter feeds.
Unlike other starter feeds, the uniquely diverse nature of this ration negates the need to change diets from a starter to a grower (pullet grower) part way through the growing cycle. This avoids waste and the expense of a separate feed allowing it to be given to day old chicks through to point of lay hens (18 to 20 weeks approx). It is important to ensure your chicks have free access to feed and water and protected from any harsh environmental conditions. Keeping warm with a specific heater lamp is essential during colder months. It is also advisable to begin to blend the chick starter grower with your preferred Country heritage Feeds Layer ration at 16 weeks of age; this will provide the extra calcium to assist with egg production.
The Chicken Starter Grower is equally diverse when feeding meat birds, once again avoiding the need to swap to a grower ration during the growth cycle allowing it to be fed until slaughter (Approx 10 weeks).
