What we feed our hens

Scratch and Peck Feeds

“You are what your animals eat…”

We discovered this feed a couple months ago. It’s produced by a local NW company out of Bellingham, Washington. All natural, Soy free, Non-GMO & Washington organic grains.  They started out making this in a borrowed cement mixer in their backyard. Word got out about their ‘wonder feed’ & demand increased beyond the backyard cement mixer.

Most commercial feed is in pellet form, whether organic or not. This stuff looks like what a bird would & should be eating. Seeds & grains. It’s high in omega-3 fatty acids, protein & essential vitamins. It also contains Camelina- which is rich in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. Also contains wheat, barley, field peas, fish meal & kelp meals.

Good stuff for the hens and the humans!
