    Layer Pellets Easy-to-carry 15kg bag A high-quality commercial layer feed, formulated to be fed to layer hens ad lib. along with clean, cool, fresh water. It is nutritionally balanced for energy, essential amino acids, calcium, phosphorus, vitamins and minerals essential to egg production. Natural pigments derived from marigold and paprika are utilised to ensure a vibrant yolk colour MOULTING & DAY LENGTH Laying hens have a natural response to day length which can result in reduced production around the shortest days of the year (Winter). In some circumstances laying may stop all together and hens will go into a moult. During a moult a hen will stop laying, shed large amounts of feathers and grow new feathers. As the day length increases and the moult finishes the hen will normally begin a new cycle of egg production It is possible to limit loss of production due to short day length by using artificial lighting in the hen house to create a constant day length (approximately 16 hours). Using a simple timer, lights can be turned on and off automatically Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight WARNING This feed has been manufactured specifically for poultry, do not feed to any other species of animal.

Within a few hours, the chick has positioned itself to hatch and pushes its feet to break the shell open Instinctively chicks position their head under their right wing when hatching. This is called internal pipping
