They're fantastic. They're funny. They're fluffy. They're chickens. They eat bugs, lay eggs, and look hilarious when they run. Complete chicken feeds for your hens? Great quality scratch? Oyster shell and different sizes of grit? All sourced in the USA? 🇺🇸 Yes please. ✔️
Quality chicken products for quality chicken health.
FEED, ANYONE? The basis of any good chicken diet is a high-quality feed. Feed provides those fluffy feathers with the right amount of protein and minerals to keep their health in tip-top shape. And it keeps those eggs comin'. (Can you say bonus? I mean, we can. And we do.)
Vitamins, nutrients... everyone needs them from their food source. Including our chickens.
SCRATCH: Chickens gotta scratch. And peck. Giving your hens great quality chicken scratch keeps 'em healthy and makes healthier eggs for your family, too. That's a total win.
GRIT? WE'VE GOT IT. When's the last time you saw a chicken tooth?
Grit takes the place of what teeth do... it grinds and crushes the food in the gizzards. Your birds should always have some on hand. Chickens will self-regulate their grit intake, so no worries about overdoing it. But if they need some and can't get to any, they may end up with digestive problems.
SHELL: Hens go through a pretty amazing process building those eggs, and oyster shell helps out at a very specific point. The shells are built last, usually overnight - and the process can drain your chicken of calcium. The calcium in oyster shell is digested at a different rate than that found in their feed, so they have some extra during those night hours when they are creating shell.
Is it a secret that chickens love bugs? (If it is, we'll correct that here.) They LOVE bugs. One, they form part of a chicken's natural diet. When they're scratching and foraging, they're eating those insects. And what? Insects provide essential vitamins and minerals and are an excellent source of protein? Yep. They are. Grub bugs are a definite fav.
For the healthiest chickens (and the greatest eggs!), we've got the best Oyster Shell available. Your chickens will love the added calcium!

The same old, same old. Day in and day out… sigh.
Believe it or not, chickens are pretty sharp little animals. They need something to occupy their minds. Otherwise, like all curious beasties, they can start finding ways to occupy themselves – which probably includes destruction of some sort. So how can you keep your feathered friends entertained and out of your enticing garden bed?
On June 9th, 2011, a group of poultry enthusiasts headed out for the first ever, self-guided tour of the chicken coops quietly residing in backyards across the city. This tour, now on its 8th year, has come to be known as the “Pittsburgh Chicks-in-the-Hood Urban Chicken Coop Tour."
And it’s a hoot! Or a squawk, I guess.
