Start Your Own Poultry Feed Processing Business
Small-scale farmers have made a lot of money from poultry farming and this seems to be the right track to fill out a good living. The reason is that it is cheaper to start and requires a little amount of capital. However, poor quality poultry feeds can lead to stunted growth, diseases, low egg production or even death. The best ways to cut feed production cost and maintain quality is to make chicken feed on the farm. At the same time, producing all varieties of poultry feed at once can be puzzling to unexperienced poultry animal keepers.
Here let's take chicken feed for example. There is a lot of feed in the chicken menu, and the list can be quite overpowering. The following glossary will help you make sense of all chicken feed concepts.
Starter Chicken Feed
Baby chicks require feed with DCP (Digestive Crude Protein) of 18 to 20 percent. Starter feed is dense in protein and meets the requirements of growing chicks. Young chicks can live on this diet and water comfortably for one and half months of their life before they advance to grower feed. The high concentration of DCP help baby chicks to develops into wonderful playful pullets. However, the farmer needs to phase out this type of feed once the chicks are six weeks old to avoid feeding excess protein which can cause damage to the liver.
Feed Pellet Crumbles for Chicks
In addition, and to avoid any confusion, there is a type of feed called starter or simply grower feed that chicken can consume from 1-20 weeks of their life. But this, you must consult professional poultry farmers in case of any doubt.
Grower Chicken Feed
Grower chicken feed is given to chicken that are between one and a half months to 5 months old. This differentiates it from the starter chicken feed.
Small Feed Pellets for Grower Chicken
Growers should consume feed having between 16 to 18 percent protein content and lesser calcium concentration compared to the regular chicken feed. Grower feed supports the growth of young eggs inside the young layers without giving them too much minerals and unnecessary vitamins that are only suitable for fully grown chicken. This makes the young layers to grow fast as they prepare to lay high-quality eggs. Once the pullets start laying eggs, it's a sign that you should start providing them with layer chicken feed.

Layer Chicken Feed
The layer feed has a DCP content similar to that of the grower feed - between 16 to 18 percent. However, it contains an extra lime (calcium) and mineral salts that encourage the production of healthy eggshells. It is important to understand that laying chicken that doesn't get sufficient calcium will start using calcium that is stored in their bone tissue to make eggshells. This explains why it is very important to introduce layer feed to chicken around five months old or those that havejust started laying eggs. Layer feed should be given to chicken that are only 20 weeks old. Giving this diet to baby chicks will not meet their required special diet.

Layer Chicken Feed Pellets
Poultry farmers should keep the necessary feed quantities for every stage of the growing chicken. A baby chick needs a minimum of sixty grams daily - give them vegetable and fruit cuttings if they finish their daily rations to ensure that they feed at every point. Egg-laying chicken should be given 130 to 140 grams of feed daily. For pullets, you should give them sixty grams for 2 months and then provide them with a layer diet of 140 grams a day. This will ensure high-quality and happy chicken.
