Full Item Details
Country Layers pellets provide a complete feed for free range laying birds.
Calcium is added to provide strong shells, together with all the necessary minerals and vitamins for a healthy bird.
To give an attractive yolk colour, pigments extracted from marigold petals are added together with another compound which occurs naturally in the skins of oranges.
Country Layers should be fed ad lib to laying birds. A typical bird will eat between 130 and 140 grammes per day.
If mixed corn or wheat is to be fed then it should be in small quantities in the afternoon. Too much will reduce the bird's appetite for the layers pellets and they may not get enough protein, minerals and vitamins.
A constant supply of fresh water and grit should be provided.
Country Layers Pellets are made using traditional quality ingredients. To make pellets the ingredients are carefully mixed in just the right proportions, ground into a meal, steam cooked to improve digestibility and extruded into a 3mm pellet.
The target levels for the key nutrients are:
Vitamin A: 7500 iu per kg
Vitamin D3: 3000 iu per kg
Vitamin E 20 mg per kg
Copper: 15 mg per kg
