Layers Feed Consumption & Weight Chart

Layer feed consumption is an important aspect of poultry production. It is a measure of the amount of feed consumed by a layer or pullet per day and is a key performance indicator in the egg industry. Layer feed consumption varies with the age of the bird, the production system, the diet, and the environment.

The chart below shows the standard daily layer feed consumption for commercial egg-laying chicken strains. This chart provides you with information on the average amount of feed consumed by layers per day and expected body weight from the first week of life until they stop laying eggs.

The layer chicken feed consumption and weight chart will help you to answer this question. With this chart, you will be able to determine the following:

  1. The average quantity of feed consumed by a layer from day 1 to point of lay.
  2. The quantity of feed consumed per day and week
  3. The growth rate of layers
  4. The average weight gain each week
