Poultry > Feeding & Nutrition
Ive read fishmeal is good for feeding chickens would you do this in addition to giving them poultry layer (16% protein plus other stuff and oyster shells? Also vitamins in the water does this really help in better bigger egg production?
Fishmeal is a good source of protein for chickens. However, it would be unnecessary to feed in addition to poultry layer mash (16%). Vitamins in the water do NOT help in better egg production, just healthier birds.
