Crushed feed is usually produced by crushing, mixing, pelleting and broking. It’s easier to manage than mash feeds. Its texture is mainly similar to oatmeal. And make sure to have a constant supply of fresh and clean water according to their needs. Add some dry ground wheat and dry mash. This type of feed supports the growth of the chickens after the first six weeks until the hens start laying eggs.
3.Chicken Feed Pellets:
Feed pellets are made by grinding, mixing and pelleting processes. This type of Feed is the most common type. They are designed for high-yield hens. This egg-laying has the right mineral, energy and protein ratios, as egg-laying consumes their energy. It takes about 24 to 25 hours for a chicken to produce an egg, so your chicken should have pellets all day. Laying hens need calcium, which is used to make eggs. Oyster shells are usually used because they are a source of calcium. If the chicken’s digestive system is empty, she can’t make any eggs, so make sure your chicken rests with full crops at night.
