Chickens eat a variety of food to keep them healthy and able to produce eggs regularly. They are actually omnivores, which means they will eat a variety of fruits, vegetables, grains, rocks, shells and even table scraps. If your coop lacks a variety of flora and fauna, then it’s vital you supplement your chickens diet with a healthy top layer chicken feed or layer mash.
Pet City will continuously strive to source the best organic chicken feeds brands in Australia, to ensure all our customers are giving their chickens the best nutrients possible. These are some of the brands we believe have the best formulas that will help to maximise egg production for your laying hens.CHICKEN FEED FOR SALE
Chicken starter feed is composed of a variety of grains and different wheats. “Mash” is the common term for a chicken starter feed composed of wheat and grains ground up into small particles. The reasons "Mash" is so good, is because the powdered form is much easier for baby chicks to digest. It is important to remember to keep a shallow bowl of freshwater nearby and regularly swap this out for clean water. Baby chicks need a constant supply of both to allow them to grow healthy and strong.
Layer pellets are highly recommended for chickens as they cannot pick out the certain grains that they want to eat and leave the rest. When chickens are only choosing certain grains, they will not be receiving all of the right vitamins and minerals necessary for them to thrive. Pellets are formulated to meet the chicken’s nutritional requirements so you can be sure that the hens are receiving proper nutrition (in addition to fresh foods and insects) when on a pelleted diet. Not being able to pick and choose certain grains also minimises wastage and mess.
Layer mash is ideal when you have ‘picky’ chickens they will selectively choose the grains they want to eat. It is also ideal for growing chicks as it is much easier for them to digest. Having finely milled grains, means your chickens are less selective and may help to provide additional health benefits if you have chickens that are lacking in nutrients.
A high quality top layer feed for hens is quite essential to grow healthy, egg producing hens. Top Layer chicken feeds are generally well-balanced to deliver your chickens all the nutrients they require to become consistent layers. These are some of our favourite chicken top layers we recommend:
Rocks and Shells? Yes, Chickens will actually eat small stones and shells to help digest grains and seeds. Due to having a high grain diet, chickens may need to be supplemented with shell grit to be able to help them digest their food properly.
Chicken scratch is primarily cracked corn and other grains and is an ideal treat for your backyard chickens. However, chicken scratch should not be relied on as a primary food source as it lacks other quality nutrients that you find in top layers and mashes.
Chickens will pretty much eat anything their beaks can catch or their feet are able to scratch up. They love scratching around plants to find worms and small insects. Sometimes that can lead your gardening astray. Giving your chickens access to a super delicious treat like Pet City’s Candy Crush will give your chickens something else to focus on.

Growing healthy hens that will produce an abundance of eggs, comes down to feeding your chickens regularly with high quality layer mash and feed, keeping a fresh water supply and making sure your chickens remain happy by introducing new elements to their routine like compost piles, fresh worms or giving them access to fresh vegetable plots. Sometimes raising a high quality egg laying hen is harder than it sounds. Supplementing their diet with one of our favourite organic chicken feeds could be the difference between having your own fresh , organic eggs or having to rely on supermarketsSHOP HIGH QUALITY CHICKEN FEED
Most people will raise chickens to either benefit from having fresh, healthy and organic chickens eggs, raise them for pets or to sell eggs at farmers markets. Saving costs is another reason people have started turning towards raising their own backyard chickens and growing their own vegetation. The cost of chicken feed and bedding are largely the two biggest costs raising chickens. One thing you might not realise when raising chickens, is by feeding them smarter you can save money by wasting less chicken feed.SHOP HIGH QUALITY CHICKEN FEED
Chicken feeders are an ideal way to prevent your chickens from scratching food all over the place. Hanging the feeders or otherwise elevating them will also help prevent the feed from becoming contaminated by faeces and bedding. Plastic feeders have been known to deteriorate from constant UV exposure if kept outdoors, however there are now feeders and waterers available that are UV stabilised. Feeders and waterers come in a range of sizes to suit the life-stage of the chickens as well as the size of the flock.SHOP HIGH QUALITY CHICKEN FEED
