The Starter Stage

Marsdens starter feeds are formulated from the finest raw materials to provide a dense and balanced diet across all of the product textures offered – from the smallest crumb up to a full pellet, every particle is a complete nutritional package. 

At Marsdens, we recognise that each individual bird needs the best opportunity to feed as soon as possible. Every gram counts to support the healthy growth and development of the chick.

We have a range of starter feed options to ensure your poults get off to a good start, including a fine crumb, mini pellet and coarse crumb before moving onto early grower which ensures a smooth transition through to a larger pellet size. Formulated with responsibly sourced soya and fishmeal, Marsdens starter feeds are highly nutritious, producing healthy, robust poults.

Typically fed in weeks 1 and 2, Marsdens Fine Crumbs are available as 29% or 26% protein and are formulated with fishmeal to deliver the optimum balance of amino acids naturally. 
A non fish version of the 26% protein crumb is available. All Marsdens crumbs contain a coccidiostat.

Mini Pellets
Marsdens Starter and Early Grower 2mm mini pellets are typically fed in weeks 3 and 4 formulated at 26% and 24% protein respectively and both contain fishmeal.
