Backyard Chicken Nutrition (Video)
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.
