|Hen scratch feed, also known as scratch grain, is a mixture of grains and seeds commonly fed to poultry, including chickens. It serves as a supplemental feed option and offers a variety of benefits for poultry:
- Energy and Nutrition: Hen scratch feed provides a source of energy through its mixture of grains, such as corn, wheat, barley, and oats. These grains are rich in carbohydrates, providing poultry with the energy they need for daily activities, growth, and egg production.
- Variety and Enrichment: Scratch grain offers a diverse mix of textures and flavors, providing enrichment and mental stimulation for poultry. The different grains and seeds in the feed encourage pecking, scratching, and foraging behaviors, helping to keep the birds active and engaged.
- Protein and Amino Acids: Scratch feed often contains protein-rich ingredients like sunflower seeds and millet. These ingredients contribute to the protein requirements of poultry, supporting muscle development, feather health, and overall growth.
- Natural Foraging Behavior: Poultry, including chickens, have a natural instinct to scratch and peck at the ground in search of food. Hen scratch feed allows them to engage in this natural foraging behavior, providing them with a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction.
- Supplemental Feed: Hen scratch feed is typically offered as a supplement to a balanced poultry diet. While it provides energy and some essential nutrients, it is important to ensure that poultry also receive a complete and nutritionally balanced feed to meet their specific dietary needs.
- Winter Feed: Scratch grain can be particularly useful during colder months when access to natural forage is limited. It can supplement the diet of free-range or backyard poultry by providing an additional source of energy and nutrition.
