Feed Year Round

by Lainey
(Vail, AZ, USA)

I am a 4h'r and I have been in 4h four 2 years in Pima County and shown and auctioned in the 2016 fair! This year I am hoping to win! Anyways I have a flock of 13 birds and growing! We feed our birds Purina Layer Crumble so they lay a lot in the year! But my 4 h leader gives suggestions before fair like a month before fair to feed them Turkey Grower. I did try it and ended up using it before fairs now! It fattens them up so they look Bright and Healthy! Wish Me luck!

Thank you Lainey for sharing with us! I've an old(er) 4-H project supervisor and when my kids were in 4-H we used all kinds of tips and extras to keep our birds in top condition. I really like your tip because it's simple, easy and effective. Wishing you continued success with your chickens!
