Folks are going to feed a lot more oats to their poultry in the next few years if they agree with the conclusions we have reached about their value here at the Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station. Our experiments over a period of about 5 years show that oats are the best single grain for young growing chicks, turkeys and excellent for laying hens, too. Experimental work elsewhere also indicates that oats are highly valuable as a poultry feed.
