Feeding Directions

Feed as the sole diet to laying hens and breeders for maximum production and for improved hatchability. Hens may also be fed 5 pounds of BUCKEYE® Nutrition Layer-Breeder Pellets per 100 birds daily along with their regular ration to encourage additional daily feed intake for increased production. Maintain a clean, fresh supply of water and oyster shells available to the birds at all time. For top production, maintain light on the birds between 14 and 16 hours per day. Do not feed BUCKEYE® Nutrition Layer Breeder Pellets to poultry which are not in production because of the high calcium levels in the diet. This is particularly true of young and growing birds. BUCKEYE® Nutrition Layer-Breeder Pellets are also recommended for breeding game birds such as pheasants.
