Chick Starter

Family Coop Chick Starter is specifically designed to be the first feed the chick eats. It is also designed to be the sole ration, so it has the proper levels of vitamins and minerals to build a healthy gut and strong feathers. The best combination of amino acids ensure that the first feathers are in excellent condition so future feathers will also grow in strong.

Family Coop Chick Starter should be offered free-choice until each chick has consumed 1 lb. Fast growing broiler breeds may consume 1 lb in approximately 10-14 days. Slower growing breeds and pullets may take up to 21 days to consume 1 lb. After chicks have consumed 1 lb Family Coop Chick Starter switch to Family Coop Chick Grower.

Chick Grower

Family Coop Chick Grower is designed as the second feed the chicks will eat. It is very important to grow bones in the chicks, whether they are going to lay eggs or will be grown out for meat. Strong bones are an essential part of a healthy chicken. Family Coop Chick Grower has an excellent balance of the major minerals that provide calcium and phosphorous along with the necessary vitamins and micro minerals. Water is an important nutrient, so keep clean, fresh water available at all times.

Family Coop Chick Grower should be offered free-choice until each chick has consumed 4 lbs. Fast growing broiler breeds may consume 4 lbs in approximately 21 days. Slower growing breeds and pullets may take 21-28 days to consume 4 lbs. After chicks have consumed 4 lbs of Family Coop Chick Grower switch to either Family Coop Broiler Finisher for broilers, or to Family Coop Pullet Developer for pullets.

Broiler Finisher

Family Coop Broiler Finisher is designed to put final weight on chickens before processing and is designed to provide the energy to keep chickens healthy during fast weight gain while building flavorful meat. About two weeks on finisher should get the results needed. The chickens will drink approximately 1 quart of water for every pound of feed they eat. Keep the bedding dry and clean, and provide good ventilation for fresh air.

Family Coop Broiler Finisher should be offered free-choice until ready for processing. Fast growing broiler breeds may consume approximately 4-6 lbs in 14-21 days. Slower growing broiler breeds may consume 4-6 lbs in 21-28 days, depending on desired processing weight and age.

Pullet Developer

Family Coop Pullet Developer provides the proper balance of protein and energy along with the right amount of minerals and vitamins to grow the chickens effectively, without them becoming overweight. Give the chickens plenty of room to exercise and something to climb on. Provide roost space at this time – you want them in good physical condition for laying time.

Family Coop Pullet Developer should be offered free-choice. Daily consumption will vary between .10-.20 lb per day depending on breed and size of pullets. When pullets begin to lay switch to Family Coop Layer.


Family Coop Layer is designed to give hens the proper protein and energy balance needed, along with calcium, so they can produce many eggs. There is no need to add extra calcium from another source. Keep clean, fresh water available at all times. Hens need a clean nest so be sure to provide plenty of nest choices for the chickens.

Family Coop Layer should be offered free-choice. Daily consumption will vary between .20-.28 lb per/hd/day depending on breed and size of hens.

Layer Tip

When pullets reach sexual maturity and daylight hours are long enough, a healthy mature pullet will begin laying eggs. In the spring, when days naturally get longer, hens will naturally increase egg production. In the fall, when daylight hours become shorter, egg production will naturally decrease. If you want your hens to continue laying through fall and winter months you will need to provide light to extend daylight hours to a total of 16 hours per day. This can be done by using a timer that turns lights on early in the morning and off later in the evening.

Chicken Care Tips

  • The temperature should be 90-95°F for the first week at floor level. You can achieve this by hanging a heat lamp or brooder 18-20” above the floor. Reduce the temperature a few degrees each day by raising the heat lamp or brooder. By 21 days, you should be around 70°F.
  • Provide 1-2” of clean, dry, non-dusty litter (pine shavings or chopped straw).
  • Keep litter dry, replacing it as needed.
  • Place Family Coop Chick Starter in cardboard flats, shallow pans, or on plain cardboard sheets so chicks can easily find feed.
  • Always have clean, fresh water available.
  • Give the chicks plenty of space to help keep them dry.
  • For additional husbandry and feeding recommendations, call your NEMO Feed representative.
