Layer Feed Consumption

How much feed will your laying hens need is a common question we get. 

Starter Feed - For the first 6 weeks your chicks should be on organic starter feed.  Each bird will require about 1 ounce per day or approximentaly 2.63 pounds of feed for the first 42 days.

Grower Feed - Starting with week seven, feed your laying chickens grower feed.   The protein level of this feed is typically 17% to 18%.  You will need about 8 pounds of feed per bird based on a consumption of 3 ounces per bird per day.

Layer Feed -  At about 16 weeks, switch your chickens to layer feed.   The protein level of this feed is typically 16% to 17%.   A laying hen will consume about 1.75 pounds of feed per week.
