    Great Feed

    By on

    I was feeding a name brand that had been working well then my chickens started laying Eggs with thin shells and became very inconsistent. I started feeding Egglands to them and we are back in production . My hens are laying consistently and laying eggs with thicker shells. They are happy and so are we. I would definitely recommend this feed.

    Stronger eggs

    By on

    One of our hens repeatedly laid eggs with very weak shells. Switched to this feed and problem was solved right away. Amazing. I was concerned about the small pellets as I have a treadle feeder that tends to clog if I use crumbled food but the small pellets have worked out fine. Everyone’s happy

    Sad Bag of Food

    By on

    Unfortunately I was very disappointed. Not sure what warehouse it came from (I'm in California where it's Dry & Hot) but the chicken feed was wet and molded. I didn't want to chance giving it to my flock of hens in fear of them getting sick. So I just threw the whole thing out all 40lbs SAD. I was looking forward to the chicken feed being delivered with my Dog food. I have been a client of Chewy's for many years. They care about there customers and I will continue to recommend there services. Sadly though Not Eggland's Best.

    Hey, Mikey, you like it!

    By on

    My chickens are not picky, but it seems that they like to scratch this food out on the ground more than the other feed bought previously. I'm not sure exactly why, but the bottom line is they eat it.

    MINI PELLETS

    Great feed. A little pricey at full price. Got on sale, which helps. Large bag, which is hard to find other places. Will buy again if goes on sale in the near future!

    Chicken feed

    Fast delivery. Undamaged sturdy box. My chickens love the small pellets. I have only 3 chicken, smaller bag would be better.

    good food a little expensive

    By on

    Comparing to the pellets I know other people buy, this is pretty pricy. My boyfriends mom gets 75lbs of pellets for 18 bucks at a local feed store and has healthy and happy chickens and huge eggs! It is a really good food though for us! Our chickens love it and the mini size is perfect for them since they’re 7 months old. I will definitely be buying more.

    Mini-Pellets for Hens

    By on

    Crumbles were too small and often filled with powder; regular pellets didn't seem to appeal to our hens...too large(?). But like the story of Goldilocks, these mini-pellets are just right. AND, the girls actually eat them! Our local feed store could not keep them stocked on a regular basis. Chewy saved us time, energy and cash by having Eggland's Best mini-pellet chicken food available not only for order, but also for auto ship! Pleased with the product, egg laying has significantly improved and hens like it.

    Lazy Chickens

    By on

    I had a bad problem with thin shells and chickens not laying. Within a week, they were laying consistently and have been for 4 months now. Shells are much better as well. The convenience of not doing to a feed store miles is nice and the price is comparable to buying at a brick and mortar store. Best feed I’ve ever used, chickens love it.

    Happy Layers

    By on

    We tried Eggland's layer mini pellets in our coop and the hens loved it. They pecked it right up. Our Swedish Flower rooster loves it too. Thx for a good product that Fed-Ex delivered to the back porch.
