As you get started on the journey of raising backyard or commercial chickens, it’s fun to look forward to the milestones you will celebrate with your flock. From baby chick to retirement, there are six important chicken growth stages. Each stage signals nutrition changes for your flock’s complete chicken feed.

Graduating school, getting married, having children, retirement. We celebrate many milestones in life.

Key moments also happen for chickens. While your flock won’t be buying their first new car any time soon, each bird will also go through important growth stages, celebrate them 😁🐣🐥🐓🕊
