How to choose chicken feeds?
Chicken feeds are material that provide essential nutrients for chickens. Most chicken feeds include corn, soybean meal, sorghum, mill run, fish meal and a vitamin supplement. Chicken feed are used to feed chickens of all ages and sizes. For example, broiler chicken feed is different from layer chicken feed.
broiler chicken feed: Broiler chickens are raised for their meat. They need to be fed more protein than layers in order to get large enough before they are butchered because of their short life cycle.
High-quality feed is essential to the development of large healthy broilers and fast-growing start-to-finish systems. Sufficient protein must be included in broiler diets at all stages of production for adequate meat production
Protein is particularly important during the last three weeks of finishing when it should comprise about 20 percent of the diet by dry matter
The amount of protein required for optimal performance can vary depending on the age, type and weight gain of the birds, and whether or not vitamins A and D are included in the diet
Layer chicken feed: Laying hens need a balanced diet that contains high-quality protein sources as well as other nutrients like vitamins and
Chicken feed needs to provide a balanced diet that contains high-quality protein sources as well as other nutrients like vitamins and minerals (see below for more information about these). Protein is vital for healthy egg production, and to keep hens healthy and productive.
The protein source can be either a grain like corn or wheat, or animal by-products such as meat, fishmeal or blood meal. The protein content of the feed should be 15% to 20%.
Grain, Grains provide carbohydrates and energy, which the hens need to grow and lay eggs. A good mix should contain at least three grains such as corn, wheat and barley.
Do check with your local agricultural extension service as many states have restrictions on how much grain can be used in layer chicken feed.
Vitamins and minerals, Layer chicken feed also needs to contain vitamins and minerals that promote health and egg production.
This can include calcium, which strengthens bones for healthy egg laying; protein for muscle growth; magnesium for healthy bones; selenium for antioxidant protection; and vitamins such as A, D3 (for bone development), E (for egg yolks) and B12 (for red blood cell production).
