Poultry Feeds For Layers Birds From Day Old (Day 10) to Their 70week




Good day guys, I have often been asked to give an estimate of the feed layer will feed on during their 70 weeks they will be staying in your farm.  That’s what I want to talk about today, we charge for information like this but I am giving for free on Greenhealthyfarm.com today. You can just appreciate me by commenting on my blog.

Assumptions:
The following assumptions will be taken into consideration
  • We will be making the estimation for 100 layers
  • The birds will be healthy all through their life time to consume on the standard daily quantity needed for growth and reproduction
  • Each bag of commercial feed is 25 KG
  • At 70 weeks, they will be sent to the market as ‘old layers’
THE TABLE BELOW SHOWS THE QUANTITY 100 BIRDS WILL CONSUME FOR DAY 1 TO DAY 140(20 WEEKS)

4 weeks(starter mash)0.40401  3/5
6 weeks(starter mash)0.65652  3/5
8 weeks(starter mash)0.85853  2/5
Total 8 weeks(starter mash)2.102108  2/5*1
10 weeks(grower mash)0.90903  3/5
12 weeks(grower mash)1.001004
14 weeks(grower mash)1.101104  2/5
16 weeks(grower mash)1.151154  3/5
18 weeks(grower mash)1.151154  3/5
20 weeks(grower mash)1.301305  1/5
Total 9-20 weeks(grower mash)6.6066026  2/5
Total 1-20 weeks(starter & grower)8.7087034  4/5*2
  • From the table, 100 pullets will consume 210 KG of Starter mash which will be 210kg/25kg = 82/bags of chick mash.
  • 100 pullets will also 660 kg of grower mash between 9 -20 week which is about 262/bags of grower mash
  • After 20 weeks when the bird would have started laying above 5% of the total no of bird (i.e. 5 eggs daily) it is standard practice that 200 layers will consume 25 kg of feed daily, that means ,100 layers will consume ½ a bag (12.5 kg )daily.
Based on the following analysis, below is a summary of the total number of feed 100 birds will consume in 70 weeks

So guys, that’s it
