Feathers & Beaky Layers Pellets is for hens over 16 weeks. Feathers & Beaky Layers Pellets is also suitable for cockerels and roosters. Layers pellets should be a chicken's main diet, with any treats being fed late in the day. We include natural extracts of paprika, marigold and alfalfa (no articial pigments) to give a rich yellow colour to the egg yolks. We also add limestone and dicalcium phosphate to provide calcium for strong bones and eggshell development. We recommend free feeding.
