Golden Yolk  20 Kg
 
Golden Yolk layers pellets is the most popular of the several poultry feeds that we sell
 
 
The following is loosely based on the Chook Book
published by Ridley Agriproducts, but I have modified some parts based on my own experience in keeping hens.
 
FEEDING DIRECTIONS
Ensure birds have continuous access to feed – do not restrict feed consumption.
Self-feeders designed for poultry are a good way to ensure feed is continuously available.
Hens are very good at balancing their own diet if they have access to good food like Golden Yolk pellets. 
They will eat good quality green food if it is available.  Fresh kitchen scraps can be given.
Ensure hens have access to clean, fresh water at all times.
As a personal note; in my experience both the taste and appearance of eggs will be improved substantially if the hens have access to green grass.  
 
EXPECTED FEED CONSUMPTION
• You can expect hens to consume 130 grams of feed per bird each day.
• A group of 10 hens will consume approximately 9 kg of feed each week.
Each hen can be expected to eat about 48 kg of Golden Yolk a year if this is the only food it is getting.  If substantially more than this is being used, you are probably losing some to wild birds or rodents.
