Duffields Layers Mash


A ‘main feed’ for laying hens. An alternative feed to pellets, this feed takes the hens longer to eat and so is an ideal feed for hens in a small enclosure.

Duffields layers mash is a 16 % protein layers feed fully supplemented with vitamins and minerals. Used by the commercial poultry industry, we recommend this feed is fed initially to pullets to avoid a change in feed and home all at once.  It is a suitable layers feed to continue using or an alternative layers feed can be gradually introduced.

Duffields is a British family-owned business steeped in tradition and respect, founded in Norfolk it has been trading for over 125 years, a trusted brand within the agricultural sector across the UK.
