In the previous article, we discussed preparing young banana fruit as an organic alternative for commercial chicken feeds. In this article, we are going to show you how to prepare sweet potato leaves (dahon ng kamoteng baging) and mix them into commercial feeds so we can lower the cost of commercial feeds and at the same time giving our birds organic foods.
Although sweet potato leaves cannot give all the nutrients needed by the chicken, it is still one of the best addition if we want to lower our chickens’ commercial feed consumption.
Now only sweet potatoes are found almost everywhere, they are edible to all animals including cattle and ruminants. Sweet potato is one of the favorite foods of rabbits so giving these vegetables to chicken is a no-brainer.
Watch the video below on how to prepare sweet potato leaves.
Although everything is already explained in the video, the following are important to take note of.
- Make sure to wash the leaves before chopping.
- Use a sharp knife for convenience.
- make sure to add water when mixing with feeds. Without water, some chickens may eat only feeds and not the leaves.
- There is no requires ratio but 40% of kamote and 60% of feeds is recommended.
