I found a product and indeed it was like twice as much. Ha ha is there any benefits for the chicks and therir egg quality?There’s quite a few products available i.e. manna pro, Purina and lots more. Just be prepared for the cost since they’re almost double the price of the regular feeds.
So I’m a new chick mom and my daughter has now insisted that we feed our 8 barred rock chicks, only non GMO food anyone have some insight on this? I love the idea of organic not full of chemicals
I couldn’t tell if the nature’s best brand was non GMO when i was getting their feed so I ended up getting Dumor organic nonGMOI switched to an organic, non-GMO chicken feed a couple of years ago because I suspected the GMO feed may be a contributing factor to the internal laying that was showing up in some of my hens (as documented by necropsy). I'd read something about GMO feeds having negative reproductive effects on various types of livestock. Since the switch, there have been no more internal laying issues.
In my opinion, the flock is healthier and the egg quality is bound to be better. It does cost twice as much, but I think it's worth it. I use Nature's Best Organic Chick Starter/Grower for my entire flock (hens, roosters, chicks), so essentially I'm using it as an all-flock feed, while providing crushed oyster shell on the side for the laying hens.
When I get time I will check those threads thank you! I thought the twonwhere one in the same but wasn’t sure.If it is Organic, it is NON-GMO. There are a bunch of threads on here about Organic and Non-GMO feeds on here. I started many of them within the last year.
Blue Seal also has a non-gmo grower that is not too bad in price, at least around here.
Since you are in NY and Blue Seal is in New hampshire (?) you should be able to get it
