Why a balanced diet is important for chickens
Your chooks need a balanced pellet or grain mix available as the base of their diet to prevent nutritional deficiencies developing. Common deficiencies in backyard chickens include calcium deficiency, which leads to bone problems, general illness and weak shelled eggs, energy insufficiency, which leads to decreased egg production, weight loss and poor growth, along with vitamin A deficiency, which results in poor quality skin and feathers.
