Feeding Directions

Feed as the sole ration to laying hens. Maintain a clean, fresh supply of water, oyster shells, and grit to the birds at all times.  Keep the birds in a clean, dry environment with about 2 square feet of floor space per bird in a laying house along with adequate nesting locations. Hens in production should consume approximately 22 to 25 pounds of BUCKEYE® Nutrition 16% Prosperity Layer Feed per day for every 100 birds in the laying house. Begin feeding BUCKEYE® Nutrition 16% Prosperity Layer Feed as soon as the first eggs appear in the laying house. The birds will require 14 to 16 hours of light to reach normal egg production. Do not allow the lights to be on continuously so as to cause excessive stress on the birds. BUCKEYE® Nutrition 15% Pullet Grower Crumbs are recommended for immature birds or for birds, which are not in egg production because of the lower calcium in the pullet grower diet. Lighter breeds such as Leghorns should be fed BUCKEYE® Nutrition 17% Complete Layer Crumbs when feed consumption is less than 22 pounds per hundred birds and when egg production is in excess of 75%.
