And it’s paid off. New Zealand’s laying hens absolutely love this free-flowing grain and pellet mix. So do their owners. With barley, canary seeds, wheat, oats, kibbled maize, kibbled green peas, sunflower seeds, grit, and high protein pellets they know this feed will keep their hens in tip-top laying condition.

  • NZ-grown chicken feed
  • Help meet your chicken’s 16% protein diet.
  • A healthy mix of nutritious feed

Feeding guide

We recommend feeding approximately 150gm per bird per day, and it is best to always have available for extra feeding should additional fresh feed be required. Fresh water and oyster shell grit should also always be made available, and fresh greens and food scraps are a good way to add some variety and extra natural goodness to the diet of your chickens.

Ingredients

Barley, canary seeds, wheat, oats, kibbled maize, kibbled green peas, poultry pellets (soya bean meal, peas, wheat by-products (broll) and vegetable oil), sunflower seeds, grit.
