Scrap Booster – 600 g
Chickens love scraps. But feeding scraps dilutes the nutrient content of feed, ultimately affecting the health and performance of your birds.
For laying hens, the main problem caused by scraps is decreased protein intake. But now there is a way for you and your chickens to have your cake (or scraps) and eat it too: Dine a Chook Scrap Booster.
Adding a sprinkle of Dine a Chook Scrap Booster to your chickens’ scraps boosts protein and other essential nutrients. Suddenly the scraps become a performance-enhancing addition to the diet!

How to get more from your scraps with Scrap Booster
Mix through 1 tablespoon of Scrap Booster per 1-2 cups of kitchen scraps or green forage. If the scraps are very dry, add enough water to moisten (1-2 tablespoons).
Scraps should be fed once a day at most. Never feed chickens more scraps than they can consume in 20 minutes. Always use a clean dish and never feed birds directly on the ground. Remove uneaten scraps to prevent disease and deter rodents, wild birds and other pests.
Scrap Booster is not recommended for use on garden waste such as weeds and clippings, as chickens will not eat the tougher parts of the plants and the powder will be wasted. Use only on soft, green forage in small amounts.
Chickens should always have access to fresh water and a complete feed.
Use Scrap Booster whenever you are feeding scraps or as part of an avian nutrition program.
Scrap Booster is not intended as a complete feed or feed replacement. Use only as directed. Consult a veterinarian or licenced animal nutritionist when designing an animal nutrition program.
