Feed Storage

Feed Bins Feed Truck

These structures are called feed bins and are used for storing the feed for the hens in the barn. Feed deliveries are made weekly. The feed is pre-mixed at the mill and consists of a mixture of corn or wheat, soybeans, vitamins and minerals. The farm staff works closely with a poultry nutritionist to ensure the chickens eat feed with the highest nutritional content. Together, they make appropriate changes as the hens age to maintain a healthy flock.
