STARTER/GROWER FEED
OLD BIDDY HATCHERY’S POULTRY STARTER/GROWER FEED MADE WITH PEANUTS!

POULTRY STARTER/GROWER FEED CUSTOM MADE WITH HIGH PROTEIN PEANUTS!!!

POULTRY STARTER/GROWER FEED
OUR HERITAGE BREED RHODE ISLAND RED CHICKS

POULTRY STARTER/GROWER FEED NEEDS TO BE SMALL!!! OUR FEED IS MADE WITH FINELY CHOPPED PEANUTS (SKINS REMOVED) FOR BABY CHICKS!!! CHICKENS DO NOT CHEW !!! SMALLER FEED IS EASIER TO SWALLOW AND DIGEST. PEANUTS ARE UP TO 30 PERCENT PROTEIN AND ARE THE BASE FOR OUR NON-GMO SOY FREE STARTER FEED.

I HAVE BEEN HATCHING CHICKS AND STUDYING FEEDS TRYING TO IMPROVE THINGS FOR MY LAYING HENS AND CHICKS AS WELL AS HATCH RATES FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS NOW.

I HAVE FOUND THAT COMMERCIAL FEEDS (pellets and crumbles) SEEM TO BE DESIGNED TO MAKE MONEY FOR THE COMPANIES. THEY KEEP THE POULTRY ALIVE AND LAYING PRETTY GOOD, BUT, THE FEEDS DIDN’T SEEM TO BE AS GOOD AS THEY SHOULD BE TO ME. THERE IS JUST TOO MANY FILLERS FOR MY LIKING.

I THINK GOD KNOWS WHAT WE NEED MORE THAN WE DO AND HE MADE THE GRAINS JUST LIKE HE WANTED THEM! HE ALSO MADE THE ANIMALS WHO EAT THE GRAINS JUST LIKE HE KNEW THEY SHOULD BE! LET’S GET BACK TO THE WAY GOD PLANNED THINGS AND TRUST HIM AGAIN!!!

POULTRY STARTER/GROWER FEED RESEARCHING AND EXPERIMENTING!

I STARTED EXPERIMENTING WITH WAYS TO GET BACK TO NATURAL FEEDS AND IMPROVE MY LAYER FEED FOR BETTER EGG PRODUCTION, LARGER EGGS, BETTER HATCH RATES AND LOWER MORTALITY RATES WITH MY HATCHES. I FOUND THAT HIGHER PROTEIN LEVELS ALONG WITH LESS FILLERS WERE A BIG IMPROVEMENT. OUR LAYER FEED IS 20-22% PROTEIN INSTEAD OF 16-18 LIKE MOST FEEDS. OUR STARTER FEED IS 25% PROTEIN BECAUSE NEWLY HATCHED CHICKS AND OTHER FARM BIRDS NEED EVEN MORE PROTEIN TO GET A GOOD START.

OUR SOY CROPS GETTING SPRAYED!!!

I HAVE CUSTOMERS WHO SHARE MY CONCERNS WITH GENETIC MODIFICATION AND SOY PRODUCTS SO I DECIDED TO FIND WAYS AROUND THAT TOO WHILE I WAS TRYING TO IMPROVE THE FEEDS I HAVE MADE…AND WE DID!!! CORN IS ALSO GENETICALLY MODIFIED SO WE DON’T USE ANY CORN IN OUR FEED!!!

SOY HAS BEEN MODIFIED TO THE POINT ROUND UP WON’T KILL IT! SOY ALSO GETS SPRAYED UP UNTIL JUST DAYS BEFORE HARVETS? I DON’T BELIEVE THAT CAN BE GOOD FOR OUR POULTRY OR FOR US CONSIDERING ALL THE LAWSUITS WITH CANCER CAUSING ROUND UP!!!

MANY CHICKEN/CHICK FEEDS USE COTTON SEED OR COTTON SEED OIL. COTTON SEED WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE EATEN AND COTTON MAY ALSO BE SPRAYED WITH HERBICIDES, INCLUDING GLYPHOSATE (ACTIVE INGREDIENT IN ROUNDUP) SO IN MY BOOK IT’S AS DANGEROUS AS ROUNDUP.  YOU REALLY SHOULD READ THE INGREDIENTS IN YOUR FOOD TOO!!! YOU WON’T BELIEVE HOW MANY THINGS WE EAT HAVE COTTON SEED MEAL OR OIL IN THEM!!!

SOY FREE NON-GMO LAYER FEED AND INCUBATION

MY CHICKENS LOVE OUR CUSTOM MADE RAW/SHELLED PEANUT LAYER FEED AND ACTUALLY EAT LESS PER WEEK!!!

I USE THE SAME INCUBATORS WITH THE SAME INCUBATION PROCESSES AS ALWAYS AND MY HATCH RATES HAVE IMPROVED BY 3-5% THIS YEAR WITH A DROP IN MORTALITY RATES BY 5-7%. IT SEEMS THE BETTER NUTRITION IN THE LAYING HENS ALSO ADDS MORE NUTRITION TO THE EGGS AND CHICKS!!! YET ANOTHER REASON FOR TRYING TO IMPROVE THE POULTRY STARTER/GROWER FEED I USE!!!

LIKE MOST SMALL FARMERS I AM AROUND MY POULTRY AND OTHER ANIMALS A LOT EVERY DAY SO I NOTICE CHANGES…EVEN SMALL ONES. THE IMPROVEMENT IN MY LAYER FLOCK AND MY EGGS IS WHAT GOT ME TO LOOKING INTO IMPROVING MY CHICK FEED. I THINK WE ARE ON TO SOMETHING HERE!

OUR POULTRY STARTER/GROWER FEED ALSO HAS MORE OF THE NATURAL OILS FROM THE NUTS AND GRAINS BECAUSE WE DO A LOT LESS PROCESSING AND DRYING OUT THE GRAINS.

ALL GRAIN NON-GMO SOY FREE STARTER FEED!

SOY FREE NON-GMO LAYER FEED
THIS IS PART OF MY FLOCK EATING OUR ALL GRAIN PEANUT LAYER FEED!

I’M NOT A SCIENTIST OR A POULTRY NUTRITIONIST BUT I KNOW WHAT MY CHICKENS LOOK LIKE AND HOW THEY ACT AS WELL AS WHAT MY HATCH RATES ARE AND HOW MANY CHICKS DIE FROM EACH HATCH, I AM A CHICKEN FARMER!!!

I’VE BEEN FEEDING MY BREEDING FLOCK AN ALL GRAIN PEANUT BASED LAYER FEED FOR ONLY A FEW MONTHS NOW BUT WHEN MY REPEAT CUSTOMERS HAVE COME IN THIS YEAR FOR CHICKS THEY NOTICE HOW MUCH BETTER MY CHICKENS LOOK THIS YEAR OVER LAST YEAR WITHOUT ME SAYING A WORD SO I KNOW THE FEED IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN MY FLOCK.

WE HAVE NOTICED OUR CHICKENS SEEM TO LIKE THE GRAINS BETTER THAN THE CRUMBLES OR PELLETS. WE’VE ALSO NOTICED THEY ARE EATING LESS FEED PER WEEK! I HAVE ALWAYS HAD LARGE SELF FEEDERS AND KEPT FEED IN THEM ALL THE TIME SO THE CHICKENS EAT WHEN THEY WANT TO SO I KNOW THEY ARE EATING LESS BECAUSE I KEEP UP WITH MY FEED CONSUMPTION!

RESEARCH INTO LAYER FEED STARTED OUR CHICK FEED PROCESS IN MOTION!

I KNOW I’M TALKING ABOUT THE LAYER FEED BUT THAT’S WHERE I STARTED TRYING TO IMPROVE AND IT LED ME TO THE STARTER/GROWER SIDE OF FEEDS AS WELL. SEEMS THERE IS ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT ALL AROUND IF YOU WANT YOUR POULTRY TO THRIVE INSTEAD OF JUST SURVIVE.

THE POULTRY STARTER/GROWER FEED WE HAVE MADE FOR OLD BIDDY HATCHERY IS 25% PROTEIN…AND YES WE FEED IT TO ALL OUR CHICKS WHO DO WONDERFULLY ON IT!!!

UNLIKE MOST COMMERCIAL STARTER/GROWER FEEDS OUR STARTER FEED IS DESIGNED TO BE FED ALL THE WAY UP TO LAYING AGE THEN YOUR POULTRY CAN MOVE OVER TO THE 20% PROTEIN PEANUT BASED LAYER FEED WE ALSO HAVE MADE BY THE SAME FARMER IN VIRGINIA WHO WORKS WITH THE VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF AG TO INSURE OUR QUALITY AND NUTRITION.
