The CHF Organic Backyard Soy Free Layer Mash has been formulated to similar specifications as the standard Backyard Layer Mash, but without the inclusion of any organic soybean meal or soybean oil.
Application: Utilising other organic protein meals such as sunflower meal, safflower meal, linseed meal, meat meal and fishmeal; the CHF Organic Backyard Soy Free Layer Mash offers a 15% protein ration with essential vitamins and minerals to ensure consistency in laying and to provide well-formed, strong-shelled eggs with vibrant yolks.
Feed Directions: CHF Organic Backyard Soy Free Layer Mash is formulated for laying birds. (Approx. 18 – 20 weeks). It is advisable to blend layer feed with CHF Organic Chicken Starter Grower feed from 16 weeks to assist with the transition onto the layer feed.
Typical feed consumption for a backyard laying hen fed on the CHF Organic Backyard Soy Free Layer Mash is between 130g – 150g per head per day. Feed is best provided ad lib as the birds naturally regulate their consumption according to their energy requirements. A specially designed self-feeder is the most suitable method of doing this. To obtain minimal wastage, ensure that the feeder is elevated so the birds can comfortably access the feed, but high enough so they cannot scratch it out onto the ground with their feet. Always ensure that birds have access to clean potable drinking water.
