Reid Replacement Pullet Feeding Program
A set of fully balanced, high performance Replacement Pullet Feeds.
This set of mash chick and pullet feeds are produced by Reid Stockfeeds using state of the art grain crushing and mixing facilities. High quality grain is evenly ground and combined with protein meals, fats or oils, minerals, vitamins and anti-coccidial (when appropriate) to ensure even spread through the feed.
The nutritional requirements of replacement layer chicks and pullets change as they grow. It is vital to invest in pullet preparation to set the flock up for excellent performance during lay.

The Importance of Using the Right Chick Starter Feed
Our starter feed is a dense form of chicken feed that has a high protein content in order to accommodate the dietary needs of infantile chicks. Most chicks can live comfortably on a diet of water and our starter feed for the first six weeks of their lives, at which point you can advance them onto another one of our grower feeds. The high levels of protein help to make sure that your chicks become healthy and vibrant pullets.
The diet put forth through our starter feed has been formulated in accordance with the specific requirements of select breeds, which includes differing levels of canola for Hyline, Lohmann and Isa birds. It is for this reason that breed type must be made clear when you place your order as this will allow us to provide you with the correct feed for your breed.

- IMPORTANT: refer to your hatchery’s Management Guide for recommendations on how to encourage chick to consume feed during the brooding period.
- Ensure chicks and pullets have access to ample feed (ad libitum basis).
- These chick and pullet feeds are suitable for most commonly applied feeding systems but pan-style feeders are preferred.
- Ensure there is sufficient feeder space to avoid competition between individuals. Insufficient feeder space will result in a lack of body weight uniformity that will ultimately result in poor performance during lay.
With Holding Periods
- Reid Chick Starter and Reid Pullet Grower contain 100ppm Monensin.
- DO NOT FEED TO birds producing eggs for human consumption.
Free Range Feeding Advice From Reid Stockfeeds
- Hens may go ‘off the lay’ during winter months if they do not spend enough time in the light. Ensure hens are provided with light as recommended by your hatchery’s Management Guide.
- Heat stress can result in poor egg production and can lead to avoidable mortality. Ensure hens have plenty of shade and are well ventilated in Summer. Employ foggers if possible.
- For healthy layers, it is vital to ensure drinking water is cool and is always available.
