“Farm families have known the joys of raising their own poultry for years, but people everywhere are beginning to realize the many benefits of raising poultry, even if it’s right in their own backyards,” said Jane Guldin, Oley Valley Feed. “There is nothing as gratifying as the ability to participate in the production of backyard food.”
Throughout the duration of Chick Days, Oley Valley Feed will offer advice and guidance on how to raise baby chickens from freshly hatched chicks through laying, including details on proper nutrition to provide the best eggs. They will also advise on the feeding of baby rabbits, goats (kids), fish (fingerlings) and other springtime baby animals. During the Great Starts™ promotion period Purina dealers will be providing special cost-savings on Purina brand feeds -- perfect feeds for these baby animals.
Oley Valley Feed will be providing special cost-savings on Certified Natural Start & Grow® or Flock Raiser® feed from Purina throughout Chick Days.
“Chicken owners know their eggs are fresh and natural and can be confident in the treatment of the meat they eat as well as the fun activity for the whole family to get involved with,” said Jane Guldin. “The Great Starts promotion coupled with Chick Days events are designed to show people how easy it is to raise their own chickens for eggs, meat or pets. Right now the interest in raising backyard poultry is continuing to grow, so don’t miss this window of opportunity.”
