    Product description

    Scratch and Peck Feeds Naturally Free Organic Layer Feed 18% Protein is a Certified Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified product. While all of our products are soy-free, this product is both soy-free and corn-free.

    Scratch and Peck Feeds are a special blend of cracked organic grains, organic flax meal, and select vitamins and minerals sourced from North American farms. Similar to Naturally Free Organic Starter and Grower, our Naturally Free Organic Layer Feed 18% contains an optimum level of protein for Stage Three feeding.

    This Stage Three feed is appropriate for laying hens ages 20+ weeks that may require extra protein to support increased egg production during the molting season. The higher levels of calcium found in this blend help to produce stronger eggshells.

    Naturally Free Organic Layer Feed 18% may contain more fines than our 16% feeds due to the extra macronutrients. For this reason, fermenting this feed, while not required, is a win-win solution to more nutrients for the animals using it. For more cluckin’ good news on the benefits of fermenting visit our YouTube Channel: Foothills Farm + SARE Feed Fermentation Study Findings

    A nutritionally complete premium diet combined with fresh water, a clean coop and nesting environment, and plenty of fresh air, sunshine, and room to roam is among the most important considerations for your flock’s longterm wellbeing.

    This feed is suitable for ducks, geese, and all waterfowl.

    Feeding Guide

    Your hens should be approaching their full grown size at approximately 20 weeks of age. Begin introducing Naturally Free Organic Layer 18% gradually to allow for a slow adjustment to the new feed formula. This is more important when switching from a different type of feed such as crumbles or pellets as your chickens may not immediately know how to consume a mash style feed.

    Refill feeders only after all feed has been consumed (til they “clean up their plates”). Trough feeders provide the best access to our whole grain feeds. Be sure to offer fresh water, plenty of Cluckin’ Good Layer Grit and you can begin to supplement oyster shell at this age.
