Organic Chicken Layer Starter (17% protein) is for chicks through week 6 and contains added millet. This product contains grains from Montana farmers who have a commitment to sustainable production systems. We also purchase Montana-mined calcium and special vitamin/mineral premixes, all approved by USDA-NOP for use in organic feed.
Our organic feeds are made from high quality, certified organic grains grown in Montana and the surrounding region. The grains used in the rations are purchased from organic family farmers and also contain high-protein Kamut (ancient) wheat, barley, feed peas, and flax.
Because we use high quality, high-protein ingredients we use only minimal amounts of certified organic soybean meal. The variety of grains and minor ingredients in our feed assures the best complement of proteins, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins available for your chickens. Our feed contains no antibiotics, animal by-products or coccidiostats.

How to Feed:
Feed free choice to chicks 0-6 weeks old. If your birds are on a different feed now, be sure to transition them from your feed to ours over a period of several days to a week. When starting chicks be very careful to avoid conditions too hot, too cold, too humid or too drafty. Your broilers should finish in about 9-10 weeks on the three rations we have prepared. Faster growth than that can cause their legs and vital organs to fail. In addition to this feed always provide fresh water. Keep feed dry, cool and out of sun
