Feeding your hens (or chickens) a complete and balanced diet is essential to making sure they stay happy and healthy. Layer hens are omnivores so can eat a wide variety of different foods. Your hens’ feeding needs will differ and change depending on their age, breed, size and if they are laying eggs. In addition to a good quality poultry feed, a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables can also be given daily.
