Their contented heirloom hens lay lots of delicious eggs because they're happy and healthy. They keep their bellies full of the finest feed including corn, soy, flaxseed meal and limestone plus vitamins and minerals. This all-natural grain is free of by-products, hormones and antibiotics.
Hens are very social creatures. They give them the run of spacious cage-free barns where they can congregate in contented cackling groups. In good weather, they scratch around outside in our winter gardens. At night, they roost together on roomy perches.
Clean, well-ventilated barns are essential to maintaining a hens' health and productivity. They continually monitor the barns for cleanliness, ventilation, temperature, lighting and waste removal, making sure their hens have plenty of food and water and adequate space for nesting, scratching and roosting.
