Chick and Chicken Feed
« on: May 16, 2020, 05:29:55 pm »
Looking for some advise on what to feed my day old chicken and chickens.  Looking for something that is ethically sourced cereals free from routine antibiotics, any additives and growth hormones.

Can anyone advise what is the best products to buy.

As far as I am aware chick crumb for domestic flocks will not have antibiotics or growth hormones. However it may have an ACS treatment which is to prevent coccidiosis. That additive does inhibit growth slightly but does offset the risk of the disease- they don't use it here. Our chick crumb includes added vitamins, minerals and probiotics for best growth and health.
