Make Good Choices For Your Chicks: Start With The Label

You’ve set up your brooder, selected your favorite variety of chicks (ducklings, or poults), and now you’re wondering with so many options in feed, which one is the best for their longterm health and well-being.


From the start…

Like big boxes of cereal, there are many recognizable brands. But the first thing you’ll probably notice is how different the feeds look, smell, and ultimately – taste. Then, if you’re like most new chick owners you’ll be looking at those certifications. Reading labels is important to me. Should it be important when selecting feeds for my animals? Are all feeds Certified Organic and Verified NON-GMO? Where are they sourced from? Are the ingredients really nutritionally complete? Are they considered natural? Do all feeds contain medication? Do they need to? Do I need to feed my chickens grit or oyster shell?

When selecting a premium quality feed for members of your flock and farm there are many product differentiators and short and long term health considerations. And, we want you to have all the facts you need to make an informed choice not only for your animals but ultimately for your entire family.
