4 LIFE STAGES
Choosing your animal feed? Follow the numbers!
Even the smallest among us will be able to find the right feed from the shelves. HobbyFirst defined 4 life stages, each with its own number and colour. We start with number 1 for the youngest animals and we go to number 4 for the maintenance phases.
You can find the life stage number very clearly indicated on the front of the packaging. However, not every animal group has 4 life stages and some don’t even have any at all. Think about small animals. They can start eating right from birth as soon as their teeth appear until they get very old.
Feed for new-born or still very young
Growing phase, let’s say teenagers
Feed for animals in their reproduction phase, mostly for poultry
Straightforward tables on every large bag help you choose the very best feed for your animals’ age.
