Red Hen Chicken Feed has been carefully designed for both breeding and laying poultry, providing all the essential vitamins and nutrients for maximum performance and hatchability.
Hens consume an abundance of protein-rich food when they molt, in order to replenish their feathers and stay warm during a cold snap. They will also eat more in order to remain warm.
Red Hen Chick
Red Hen Chick is a high energy, premium quality poultry breeder and layer mix that has been developed specifically to support good egg production in laying birds. Containing all essential vitamins and minerals necessary for optimal egg production, it does not contain coccidiostat and should be fed to chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys and other domestic fowl species.
Rhode Island Red hens are excellent egg layers, producing 5-6 large light brown eggs each week – that’s 300-400 eggs annually! Furthermore, this breed is extremely hardy, capable of withstanding extremes of both heat and cold.
Domestic chickens make fantastic backyard pets and love interacting with their owners. Talkative and kid-friendly, domestics tend to dominate meeker breeds when mixing together in the pecking order so care must be taken when mixing. Domestics make an excellent starting point for beginners looking to raise their own chickens as they don’t require extensive care or special feed – they do best in an unassuming coop equipped with nesting boxes where they can relax as well as a small garden where they can scratch around freely.

Red Hen Free Range Layer
Chickens consume an assortment of foods from seeds to insects, but their nutritional needs can best be fulfilled through layer feed with 16-18% protein content – recommended for laying hens to ensure maximum production and egg size.
Heritage breed hens and free-range chickens alike should have access to high quality, natural country farm style blends of grains that meet their nutritional requirements, such as heritage farm style blends. Some free-range chooks may meet some of their nutritional requirements through foraging; however, it should be understood that foraging should only be seen as an option rather than as a diet choice – these birds still require access to balanced layer feed for proper care and wellbeing.
Laying hens should have access to shell grit in order to digest their food efficiently, prevent degeneration in their gizzard, and strengthen egg shell strength. Furthermore, it provides medication and meat-free nutrition while remaining highly palatable as a layer food source.
