Food We Give To Our Chickens

Chicken Food

The food we give to our chicken is those we get from our farm. We gave them natural foods and avoid artificial feeds to produce healthy and nutritious eggs.

Marigolds are one of their favorite. This flowers not only ward off insects in your garden, it is also a rich source of beta-carotene and other nutrients. A good antioxidant to promote the growth of new skin tissue of our precious chickens. Eating this flowers also makes their egg yolks darker yellow/orange.
