MUMBAI, 13 August 2021: Choosing the appropriate chicken feed for your poultry is crucial as it paves the way for growth of healthy chickens. Chickens rely on feed for a significant portion of their diet and the type of feed chosen has an effect on their health and productivity, cost of rearing and the presence of pests which feed on the leftovers. 

The main ingredients used are cereal grains like wheat, corn, barley, sorghum, rye, protein meal (vegetable protein like canola meal, sunflower meal, soybean, animal protein like meat ,bone or fish, fats and oils, vitamins, minerals  and supplements which are combined to make feed that meets the nutritional requirements of chickens based on the age and stage of the chicken (chick starter, pullet grower, laying hen).

There are three types of feed commonly used

Mash

Mash is made from crushed grain which is mixed with protein meal and supplements to get a fine, almost powdery mix. It is a complete feed with the right levels of proteins, vitamins and minerals and often used for young chickens up to 8 weeks old because it's smaller and easier to eat and digest.  

Mash is the cheapest feed requiring minimum processing. The only drawback is the mess made by young chicks as they feed only on the big pieces of grain. The leftovers are tough to clean up and attract pests like rats. Mash which is moist sticks to the feeders and reduces the flow. Chickens also do not get a balanced diet as they leave out the finer grains while feeding making them deficient in vitamins, minerals.

Pellets

Pellets are basically made from mash feed, which is then heated and compressed into tough hard pellets. They are a complete feed, with the right levels of proteins, vitamins and minerals though they are costlier because of extra processing. As they are larger and more difficult to digest, they are generally used for adult hens more than 20 weeks old who can eat them more quickly and leave hardly any mess or waste. The hens also get a balanced and more nutritious diet as they have to eat all the ingredients in the pellet having no choice to scratch through the feed like they do for mash. They are also less likely to clog up the feeder bins.

Crumble

Crumbles are made from whole pellets, which are again broken into smaller sizes. They are a complete feed, with balanced levels of proteins, vitamins and minerals, and are usually fed to pullets (teenage chickens) from 8 weeks to 18 weeks as a transition food while they are growing. It is a semi-loose variety of chicken feed which has a rough texture like oatmeal in between powdery mash and solid pellets. Smaller breeds and pullets (teenage chickens) choose to eat smaller crumbles than larger pellets. The drawbacks are they cost more than mash and pellets due to extra costs for converting mash to pellets and again breaking them down into crumbles. While crumbling the pellets dust is created which is wasted and makes a mess as it is left by the chickens while eating and also attracts pests like rats and mice.

Providing right nutritious food is very important for poultry growth, production and health. The energy requirements vary, based on many factors, including bird age and production status. Providing adequate nutrition is important for the bird to achieve its productive potential and for it to sustain health. In case of poor quality poultry feed, with improper nutrients or does not contain the right level of energy can  cause nutritional stress and lead to other health concerns.
