Feeding Recommendations

Barnyard Layer Feed can be fed as a complete diet or supplemented with household scraps or vegetables. Where the percentage of other feed sources is over 50%, extra calcium should be supplemented in the form of Oyster shell grit or a similar product to ensure good egg shell quality is maintained.

If fed as 100% of the diet then feed approximately 125g per hen per day during spring/summer and 130g per bird per day over the cooler months.

Self feeders protected from the rain and wind, are a good method of feeding the hens.

It is important to have fresh, clean drinking water available at all times, place water away from the feed to minimise spillage and dampness.


Selected from grains, grain by-products, animal proteins, plant proteins, animal fats, vegetable oils, minerals, amino acids and a specialised vitamin / mineral premix.
