Feeding in poultry
This involves the constant refilling of feed-in feeders every hour throughout the day to stimulate feeding. With regards to poultry, some birds can eat in the first hour while some eat the next hour, thus there is a great reduction in competition for feed. It gives smaller and less active birds the opportunity for unrestricted access to feed.
Depending on your management option, 1 to 3 feeders can cater for 50 birds per pen, as they generally feed throughout the day. This informs the even distribution of the feeder across the housing pen.
