Feed as the sole ration to laying hens during periods of egg production. Typical intake should be between 95 grams to 105 grams per bird per day.
Water – Poultry should have access to clean, fresh water at all times. When starting dayold birds or after moving or transporting birds, give access to water before putting feed in the feeders.
Grit – When birds have access to coarse litter or whole grains, an insoluble grit should be fed. Limit intake of grit to 1 lb (0.5 kg) per 100 lbs (50 kg) of feed or 2 lbs (1 kg) per 100 birds per week. Grit can be blended with the 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 improve shell quality.
