Chickens of all ages need grit to help them digest their food.
As chickens do not have teeth, they need grit (basically little rocks) to help break down and digest their feed.
Even if your flock is free range and finding grit in the yard, we recommend supplementing their feed with grit to avoid digestive issues that are common without grit.
Offer your chickens a grit free-choice in a separate container. Remember to always provide them with clean, fresh water.

Is your feed medicated?
Is your feed fermentable?
Yes! Here's a guide.
Where is the feed made?
100% of grains are farmed and milled in the Midwest using only U.S. grains from local family farms.
Is this feed suitable for ducks, geese, and other waterfowl?
Why does my feed vary a little between orders?
All feed is 100% Certified Organic, which means that depending on various factors, it can look a little different each time we mill it. For example, if it's been a particularly wet or dry summer, the field peas may be a different color. This is the nature of milling all organic feed, and is out of our control. We do sell pellet feed if you find you'd rather have uniform feed each time. It is exactly the same ingredients as the whole grain feed - but pelletized.
What about shipping?
We ship Monday - Friday. Shipping takes 1-3 business days via UPS.
YES! All packages ship FREE via UPS from Minneapolis.
What's up with the odd weights?
Shipping weight limitations - this is how we keep our costs down.
