Feeding Directions

Feed Homestead Layer as the sole ration to hens laying eggs. Provide a constant supply of clean, fresh water.

Feeding Tips

Poultry should have access to clean, fresh water at all times. After moving or transporting birds, provide access to water before putting feed in the feeders.
When birds have access to coarse litter or whole grains, an insoluble grit should be fed. Limit intake of grit to 1 pound per 100 pounds of feed or 2 pounds per 100 birds per week. Grit can be blended with their regular ration or offered free choice in a separate feeder.
Do not allow feeders to run empty or stale feed to accumulate.
Never feed any feedstuffs that are moldy, musty or suspect in any way.
Supplemental feeding of oyster shells may be necessary after 45 weeks of age to provide additional dietary calcium to improve egg shell quality.
