There are many different ways to feed your flock, and different poultry breeds require specific feeds for optimum nutrition. When you are deciding on a feed that best suits your flock's needs, there are a few things to consider. What type of birds are you feeding? Will you feed organic, traditional, medicated or non-medicated? However you choose to feed your flock, Meyer Hatchery offers a variety of feed options for every poultry need. Here are the some of the feeds we offer:
Medicated chick starter - Medicated chick feed contains Amprolium for prevention of Coccidiosis. Feed medicated chick starter to your chicks until they are 8 weeks of age. Amprolium is used to prevent coccidiosis, not treat it.
Non-Medicated chick starter / non-medicated feed - Non-Medicated Feed has the same great ingredients of the medicated feed, without the Amprolium.
Non-GMO Feed - Feed that is made from ingredients that are non-GMO. Offered non-medicated. Non-GMO feed is not necessarily certified organic by USDA standards.
Organic - Organic chicken feed has certified organic ingredients according to USDA standards. Meyer Hatchery's organic feed line is sourced from local Ohio farms. By definition, organic feeds are also GMO-free.
Non-Soy - Non-Soy Layer Mash is a great alternative for anyone who has a soy allergy. Field Peas make for the perfect supplemental protein source in place of soy found in most commercial feeds and can be used as a sole ration for your layers. Meyer Hatchery recommends also providing grit and/or oyster shell free choice alongside this feed for best results.
