Backyard Chicken Nutrition (Video)

Learn about chicken nutrition and what to feed your backyard chickens as they grow from chicks to hens.

When raising backyard chickens it is important to think of their nutrition, sick or poorly fed chickens will do you no good. 

A healthy, well fed chicken will have a beautiful coat of feathers and a robust body. To keep a chicken healthy you must make sure their diet is full of nutritious seeds and proteins. As a chicken grows the feed that they need changes as well so it is important to keep track of your chicken's needs. 

Providing nutritious feed for your backyard chickens is just as important as the nutritious eggs they provide for you.
