There is currently a nationwide shortage of Oyster Shell due to supply chain issues. We have switched to a calcium alternative for the time being.
Oyster Shell Alternative is a premium source of calcium for building stronger egg shells.
Provide oyster shell alternative in a separate dish once your birds start laying eggs. Always offer fresh, clean water.
Your girls will start laying around 20 weeks of age, so if you plan to supplement their calcium source, have a bag of Mile Four Oyster Shell Alternative ready to go around this time.

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.
