Q. How often and how much should I feed my poultry hens each day?

A. Poultry should always have food available to them and they will eat what they require. If your trying to minimize feed waste and don't want to put too much food that gets fouled then one idea is to put in a measured amount and then come back after one day and measure what's left. If you put 2kg and 1kg is left, then 1kg of feed is required per day.

I also managed to find this bit of information online. Note sure how accurate it is. "A chicken will typically eat about 400g of commercial feed (mixed grain or pellets) per day (about a double handful per bird)"

Q. Hi, I'm after a chicken feed which is high in omega 3, something with flax seed. Do you have anything like that?

A. The best feed for high omega 3 is Omega Show Poultry Layer Pellets 15kg which is high in omega 3,6 and 9. http://www.petandgarden.com.au/poultry/poultry-foo...

Or another option is to supplement your hen's diet with flax/linseed seed which we also sell. http://www.petandgarden.com.au/poultry/poultry-food/poultry-supplements.html

Q:  Which poultry feed should I buy for my laying hens?

A. Firstly, you need to find out what form of feed your poultry will eat. Most chickens will eat any form or some will only eat certain form types like layer pellets, layer mash, layer crumble or grain mix. As a general rule its best to go with the form your poultry are used to just in-case they reject an unfamiliar form. Pellets, mash and crumble are homogeneous so hens can't pick and choose which part of the feed they want. This helps provide more consistent nutrition. Another consideration is protein level. For laying hens its best to go with a higher protein feed. The typical layer feed has a protein level of 14 to 15% with high protein feeds ranging from 16 to 18%. There are many great feeds to choose from but here are some suggested products for each form type.

Mash: Organic Free Range Layer Mash OR any of the organic layer mash feeds.

Pellets: Poultry Supreme Layer Pellets OR Omega Show Poultry Layer Pellets (B & P Nutrition) OR Organic Free Range Layer Pellets.

Crumble: Red Hen 17 Layer Crumble OR Poultry Supreme Layer Crumble.

Grains / Scratch Mix: Organic Coarse Layer Mix OR Red Hen Free Range Poultry Layer (G)

    Frequently Asked Questions?

    Q. Could you please advise if the Red Hen feed has any GMO grains in it? I note it contains Canola which is mostly genetically modified?

    A. Answer From Manufacturer Rep: Our feeds are not GM free. As we source grain from various growers and areas we cannot guarantee there is not genetically modified grain amongst it. You would but hard pressed to find a feed supplier that would say they are 100% GM free. The only feeds that could possibly be GMO free are organic feeds.
