Flexibility of an Eight Phase Feed Program

These guidelines allow farmers flexibility in following our growth curve and to better adjust to the birds' requirements at different ages. We have now made available an eight-phase feed program in addition to the six-phase feed program.

If the flock is not following the recommended growth rate, for instance your birds are trending below 5% of the recommended growth curve, the time of switching to the next diet can be delayed to provide a better opportunity for greater daily body weight gain.
