Raising Chickens So You Know What You’re Eating…

It seems that not a day goes by that someone doesn’t mention being more vigilant about the food that goes on their table.

Many of us have also realized that raising our own small flocks of poultry address this “know what you are eating” goal, but also be a fun experience for families (and profitable for small farms.

Black Creek Farm & Feed is pleased to not only offer the live birds you want, but also the supplies and feeds you need to keep them healthy…and to product great chickens and eggs for your table.

Natural Harvest is a premium, natural and all-vegetable line of poultry feeds designed for efficient production without the use of medications, antibiotics or hormones.

The producer of Natural Harvest has implemented natural alternatives to the conventional medications used to prevent poultry diseases by boosting immunity.

The Natural Harvest products are geared for poultry in different stages, as is their equine feed. Introduced unique products like Natural Harvest Step 1 is a Poultry Pre-Starter that focus on setting up a healthy digestive and immune system for your chicks in the most crucial point of their development, the first 8-10 days.

Visit Black Creek Farm & Feed to get a brochure with details on “The Natural Harvest Difference” so you can better understand the ingredients in Natural Harvest products and why/how your flock will benefit. This high-quality feeding program, along with good management and a little elbow grease will allow you to raise a healthy and productive (as well as delicious and nutritious) flock.

The staff at Black Creek Farm & Feed is happy to provide advice, but you may also want to see these links for additional information: The ProForm Poultry Production Guide is an excellent source of basic husbandry information, including how to house your poultry, how much space to allow, how to light your hens, and information on some of the common diseases that affect small flocks.

The BC Ministry of Agriculture’s Growing Forward program has published a very comprehensive and informative guide on small-flock poultry management, and it’s available for free download at www.agf.gov.bc.ca/ahc/poultry.
