Nutritional Issues for Laying Hens
The water supply to laying hens is a vital component to the bird’s health and production. It must be clean, cool, not contaminated by wild birds and always available.
Allowing rodents, sparrows and other wild birds to access your poultry’s feed may seem kind but it can introduce disease and it is surprising how much these scavengers can eat – making the backyard egg a very expensive commodity.
