Sustainable Layer chicken feed is the perfect choice for those who want to get the best-tasting, highest-quality eggs from their hens. Our family recipe, originally formulated by renowned poultry diet researcher Dr. Hector Karunajeewa in the 1970s, exceeds the nutritional needs of laying hens. This 100% vegetarian feed comes in a dry, mash form that is loved by hens, ensuring they receive complete nutrition, including 100% organic micronutrients.

Our feed is backyard-friendly as trace elements are provided in the exact amounts needed so they don't build-up in the soil. It is also free from antibiotics and hormones, making it safe and healthy for your hens. We package our feed fresh and daily on our farm, and all ingredients are locally sourced, high-grade, and mixed in a Feed Safe Accredited grain mill. Plus, our feed bag is fully sustainable, compostable, and recyclable. Give your hens the best with Sustainable Layer chicken feed!
