Common Forms of Poultry Feed
Poultry are mostly omnivores meaning they will eat almost everything they find. Chickens for example, they can eat a snake, toads and other less exciting foods like rotten fruits, vegetables, and grass. They also feed on seeds and grain. They need the increase in nutritional requirements so as to increase their egg production. Healthy chicken requires sufficient amount of protein and carbohydrates with vitamins and adequate supply of water. So, what is the right diet for poultry animals? Let's take a look at various types of feeds and their benefits to domestic animals including poultry or fowl.
lt’s simply unprocessed and loses version of the chicken feed. It's nutritionally complete feed that is in ground form. lt’s the finest variety of chicken feed commonly available and its texture is similar to that of potting soil. lt’s used for young chicks since it's easy to digest. This type is fit for chicks during the first 1-6 weeks. This kind of feed normally has the highest amount of protein which helps the newly hatched chicks to grow healthy and quickly. Some people make it into a porridge-like feed by mixing it with hot water so that it wastes less. This method, however, results in faster expiration of the feed. The downside of mash variety is that it has a very fine texture that results in a lot of wastage. (Equipments related to Establishing a Complete Feed Mash Line)
Compared to mash feed it's easier to manage. lts texture mainly resembles that of oatmeal. This type of feed supports the growth of chicken after the first six weeks until the hens start laying eggs. When a chicken starts laying eggs there is also change in nutritional needs. Most people use the crumble to bridge the gap between mashes and pellets feed while others claim that their chicken loves the crumbly texture of the feeds.

This type of feed is the most common type available. They are specially designed for productive hens. This feed has the right proportion of mineral, energy, and protein for the chicken since laying eggs depletes their energy. It takes around 24-25 hours for a chicken to create one egg, so your chicken should have their pellets all day long. Egg laying chicken requires calcium which is used in making of eggs. Oyster shells are often used since they are a source of calcium. If a chicken’s digestive system is empty she can't manage to make any eggs, so ensure your chicken goes to rest with full crops at night. The good thing about the pellet type of feed is that it's less wasted due to its shape. lt’s easier to store, manage and serve.

Both fine and coarse particle sizes serve different functions in chicken feeds. There should be an appropriate proportion of both ingredients use so as to enhance chicken’s production performance. Their feeds must be kept clean and dry since contaminated feed can easily infect the chicken. Damp feed encourages the growth of fungus. Diseases in chicken can be easily avoided by ensuring proper maintenance and storage of the feeds. Also, ensure the feeders are well cleaned. A feeder is a device used to deliver feeds to the chicken. Feeds can be delivered through various types of feeders such as troughs and jar feeders.
