feeds is 78-80 percent of the total expenses in livestock production, wherein it can dictates the over all performance of the whole production, but always remember management and chicks quality are also big
factors to considered. here are some points to consider to check if your feeds is in good quality:

1). survey your area on what feeds is mostly use by raisers/ farmers.
     so that you have an idea on its performance.

2). upon delivery of the feeds check the production date so that you are sure that your feeds is
     always fresh.

3). if the delivered feeds is pelleted or crumble always check the percent of fines too much of it could affect feeds consumed, thus target weight is also affected.

4). check for aroma some farm owner believes that aroma of the feed could increase feed consume.

5). check the size of pelleted feeds size could also affect the feeds consumption.

6). always check the reaction of your flock in feeds thru feeds refusal, wet drops, and FCR. but always remember feeds are not always liable for this reaction, check for any factors like management during brooding, weather, bacterial or viral infections, of mostly nutritional incompatibilities or over dosage.

7). have a regular monitoring especially in toxin levels of the feeds.
