For many years that I have been a consultant to individuals and farms, the most asked question by my clients is: “What can I do to make my birds grow fast or lay well?” Well, there is no gimmick to achieving this, except they consume the right feed containing the required nutrients. However, while there are good and bad livestock feed milling companies, the problems have always been chickens performing below par and the high cost of procuring ready-made feeds.
Studies by researchers in the field have revealed that some of the ready-made feeds in Nigeria are low-quality in terms of ingredients used and nutritional composition. Hence, the reason why poultry chickens are performing poorly.
I had personally tried several popular commercial feeds but sincerely, I was not satisfied with the result or performance. So I took it upon myself to formulate feeds that will give me the results I want for broilers, cockerels and layers. After coming up with several formulas, I was able to get these ones that gave me superb results. Click here to read about my superb broiler feed formulas for faster weight and growth.
This is a product of my vast experiences in poultry farming and nutrition, and it is something you need to use if you want your layer chickens or cockerels to perform optimally and maximally, and at a cheaper cost. The feed formulas in this product have been used for commercial production. The formulae are categorized into three:
- Chick feed formula: Should be given to chickens from one day old to 8 weeks of age.
- Grower feed formula: Should be given to the birds from 8 weeks of age to 18 weeks of age (or when production is around 10%)
- Layer feed formula: Should be given from 18 weeks of age to when the laying chickens reach very old age.
These feed formulas will ease your chickens’ journey and performance from their day 1 through to their laying period. All things being equal, with these formulas, it is 95% GUARANTEED that your birds will achieve good weight faster and will start dropping around 18 weeks of age and peak at the 28th weeks of age.
