Do the chooks really need chookfeed if I give them lots of scraps?

To maintain laying (and the health of laying hens), chooks should always have access to a seed/meal mix (mash or layer mix) or, if you must, a pelletised chookfeed. For most laying breeds, 15%-16% protein in the chookfeed is considered essential to maintain regular laying and this is especially important for cross bred laying birds such as Isabrowns. All commercial feeds should have the protein content written on the bag.
