Pinhead Oats (De-husked & Cut Oats) – Pinhead Oats are enjoyed by poultry, as well as other animals.
Usually oats make up about 15-25% of a chicken’s diet, but can comprise up to 60% of their diet, replacing the corn.
This cereal crop contains 12-14% protein, due to this lower protein content, they are ideal as a feed supplement rather than sole feed. Oats are higher in calcium than wheat and corn.
Pinhead Oats have been de-husked, so contain less fibre, which makes them more digestible for chickens and waterfowl. Once they have been de-husked, they are then chopped or cut into small pieces.
Oats are a good cereal to feed for many animals, as well as waterfowl.
