Not Just Eggs To Us

It is an essential part of our day, and it makes us who we are. We take the time to understand the complexities of eggs and take care controlling chickens diet to create the perfect egg.

Yolks

Egg yolks are also a known source of eye vitamins called lutein (pronounced loo-teen) 

and 
zeaxanthin 
 (pronounced zee-uh-zan-thin) 

but the pale, watery yellow yolks in eggs from caged chickens, fed the waste products of the grain industry, contain very little. 
Lutein and zeaxanthin are two important antioxidants for the health of your eyes.

Shell

In an average laying hen, the process of shell formation takes around 20 hours. Pigmentation is added to the shell by papillae lining the oviduct, coloring it any of a variety of colors and patterns depending on species.

Since eggs are usually laid blunt end first, that end is subjected to most pressure during its passage and consequently shows the most color.

Our baby Chicks

We start our baby chicks just like you would with a well balanced diet.

Baby chicks need
more attention in there early stages,

We teach them how to
start pecking and foraging.

Once around three weeks they start dust baths and perching.
