All backyard chicken keepers know that good nutrition is the key to poultry health and reliable egg production. Poor nutrition affects the overall health of laying hens, thus reducing their productivity as well as their life expectancy.
However, in breeding stock, nutrition is even more important, as poor health will not only affect breeder performance, but will also affect the quality and quantity of chicks produced.
A layer mash can be used as a complete ration for breeding poultry, but for regular breeders, a specially formulated feed such as Laucke Mills Showbird Breeder MP is recommended.
Layer-specific feeds support reliable egg production, but breeder feeds ensure birds receive the nutrients needed to produce not just eggs, but high-quality chicks as well, maintaining breeder flock health and the genetic quality of the stock in the long term.
Dine a Chook recommends Laucke Mills Showbird Breeder MP
Breeding poultry have additional nutrient requirements that must be met to ensure high-quality egg production and fertility, as well as strong, healthy chicks.
Laucke Mills Showbird Breeder MP is a complete ration for breeding birds, manufactured from high-quality, natural ingredients. It contains balanced amounts of proteins, fats and carbohydrates, and is supplemented with vitamins and minerals to ensure optimum health both in breeding stock and in the next generation.
Laucke Mills special micro-pellets are designed to suit birds of all sizes and can be used with most chicken feeders. The no-grind technology makes for a courser pellet, which is more appealing than standard pellets.
Come in and see us at our Townsville store for more advice on keeping and breeding chickens. Laucke Mills Showbird Breeder MP, a range of other chicken feeds, and Dine a Chook products, are available.
