Quality. Consistency. Kalmbach.

Kalmbach takes pride in producing a quality product, every time. That’s why their feeds are fixed formulated, to ensure you get the exact same feed every time you open a bag!

Your Flock Will Squawk!

Kalmbach Feeds offers a complete line of poultry feed tailored to your flock’s specific needs. Your birds will simply love these feeds, and your family will love the fresh, nutritious eggs you get from your Kalmbach-fed birds.

Fixed Formulated

Kalmbach poultry feeds are fixed formulated by their Ph.D. poultry nutritionists. That means their feed formulas stay exactly the same for every batch, so you can get the consistency you want in every bag. Many other brands change their formulas as commodity prices change, but not Kalmbach Feeds. Their bag-to-bag consistency will give you peace of mind and help your flock thrive, too!

Proprietary Blends

Kalmbach premium poultry feeds contain LifeGuard and YolkProud proprietary blends to boost your birds’ health and yield beautiful, vibrant eggs.


LifeGuard is an all-natural, proprietary blend of prebiotics, probiotics, essential oils and digestive enzymes. It helps introduce beneficial bacteria into the gut to maximize intestinal health, and the specially selected essential oils help reduce stress and support healthy immunity.


Poultry owners take pride in their egg quality, and one healthy egg indicator is the color of the yolk. That’s why they call this blend YolkProud—a natural blend of flower and vegetable extracts can help you get the beautiful, vibrant egg yolks you want, for the ultimate source of pride!

Questions & Answers

5 Customer Questions

Can this be fed to hens year round? IE: Even when they’re not molting? Mine are currently on Feather Fixer, which is good for their molt, but can be eaten 365.
Answer by ChewyJan 18, 2020
This formula of feed can be fed as the sole ration on a free choice basis, year-round, to laying hens from 16 weeks of age.

Is this a crumble or a pellet?
Answer by ChewyApr 24, 2021
This feed is available in mini-pellet form.

Can this be fed if flock also has a rooster
Answer by ChewyOct 06, 2020
This high-protein complete feed is formulated for laying chickens.

Will this be a good balanced diet for peafowl ?
Answer by ChewyJun 07, 2021
This food should not be fed to peafowls. Full plume is a complete layer feed. The calcium levels are generally too high for most non-producing poultry.

Fixes Feathers!

Our birds went through the stress of moving across country and lost their bloom. We bought this to offer them the extra 'oomph' they needed to recover their plumage. So far so good and the chickens like it.

Amazing results!

Our chickens recovered very quickly from molting and feathers are beautiful. And laying did not slow down. The yolks are beautiful color also!

excellent product

My hens feathers came in amazingly glossy and darker than ever. They look super healthy. They were used to crumbles so it took a bit for them to get used to the pellets but they did. These pellets are smaller than many competitors’ pellets.

Not Sure Why

My chickens did not like this feed. I have used other kinds of this brand. But for some reason would not eat it. And yes they are spoiled.

Honestly I’m super happy with this feed! They normally get Kalmbach’s hi omega layer feed, but two of my hens are going through a hard molt and after a few days on this feed I’ve already noticed a huge change in their appearance. They love the taste too!

Great for molting

Nothing but great things to say about this feed. Had some poor chickens going through a hard molt. Normally fed Kalmbach high omega pellets. No issue changing feeds. Within a week noticed a huge improvement in feather regrowth. With colder weather on the horizon, this is giving me piece of mind they will be ok.

Happy Chickens

A few of my chickens started molting and laying had all but ceased. They also didn't seem to be eating much of their previous brand. I was told a higher protein "feather fixer" might help. My flock LOVES this food and my hens seem happy and laying again. That part may be a coincidence but they are eating more again and are happy!

my chickens don't want to try this..

I regularly ordered two bags of "Kalmbach Feeds All Natural 5-Grain Premium Scratch Chicken Feed, 50-lb bag" for my chickens and they don't have problems feeding my chickens. This time, I wanted to try "Kalmbach Feeds All Natural 20% Protein Full Plume Feathering Chicken Feed, 50-lb bag " so ordered it with my regular chicken feed. I realized it's a mistake..I mixed it with regular feed, also I tried to feed them in the separate feeder, none of them were successful. My chickens simply don't even bother to come to close :( I'm not sure whether chicken can smell, or they just don't like the small pallet shape, but I know my chickens are not picky at all. They are cage free running out there laying eggs happily. I don't know what to do with this super heavy 50lb bag that my chickens don't like it at all....

Still scratching my head

We have been using this in breeding season and for pullets 4weeks till laying. Used exclusive with Oyster shell and rooster booster per bag. We ended breeding season with every hen broody! And boys dropped trains 4 weeks early. I'd really like non soy! But the pellet size is my birds favorite. So I'm using this brand exclusively for chicks and game birds... and will do so till November where I change bag types.
