Bryan and Brittingham Inc. announces its 2013 Chick Days, a program focused on healthy starts for the many baby animals that herald the coming of spring. Bryan and Brittingham’s 2013 Chick Days will provide poultry-raising resources to Delmar and the surrounding area until Saturday, April 27.
With many people looking for ways to save on food costs and control their food choices, from the farm to the backyard, raising chickens provides a healthy and educational alternative.
During Chick Days, Bryan and Brittingham will offer $1 off 50-pound bags of Certified Natural Start & Grow in both plain and medicated versions. For more information call 302-846-9500, stop by for a visit at 38148 BI State Blvd., Delmar, or visit www.bryanandbrittingham.com.
“Farm families have known the joys of raising their own poultry for years, but people everywhere are beginning to realize the many benefits of raising poultry in their own backyards,” said Robin Breasure of Bryan and Brittingham. “There is nothing as gratifying as the ability to participate in the production of backyard food.”
Throughout the duration of Chick Days, Bryan and Brittingham will offer advice and guidance on how to raise chickens from freshly hatched chicks through laying, including details on proper nutrition to provide the best eggs. They will also advise on the feeding of baby rabbits, kid goats, foals and calves. During the Great Starts promotion period, Purina dealers will be providing special cost savings on Purina brand feeds - perfect feeds for these baby animals.
“Chicken owners know their eggs are fresh and natural and can be confident in the treatment of the meat they eat, as well as teaching their children responsibility,” said Breasure. “The Great Starts promotion coupled with Chick Days events are designed to show people how easy it is to raise their own chickens for eggs, meat or pets." All are invited to stop by Saturday, April 6, and meet Julie Ellison, a Purina sales specialist. She will be there to answer questions on the feeding and care of backyard animals.
