Ensure birds have continuous access to feed – do not restrict consumption. Expected adult feed intakes are 130g/bird/day.
Self-feeders designed for poultry are a good way to ensure feed is continuously available.
Ensure that birds have access to clean, fresh water at all times.
Ensure that Barastoc Darling Downs makes up the majority of the hens’ daily feed to ensure a balanced diet. Other feeds such as green scraps, pasture and hay may be fed, but only in small amounts.
