I Didn't Know I Could Do This!

I was so excited when Sustainable Seed Company sent Nelly and I their Poultry Package and new Happy Hen Nest BoxI was intrigued when they explained to me that their Poultry Package is designed to allow people to grow their own poultry feed. I've never given a thought that growing my own feed was something I could do!

Located in Chico, California, Sustainable Feed Company is a family owned company that provides gardeners with over 1,875 varieties of organic and heirloom seeds. They offer the largest variety available, which makes them the best source for Certified Organic Heirloom seed!

So what's in this Poultry Package?

The Poultry Package contains the following:

4 oz of Reid's Yellow Dent Corn
2 oz of Grain Sorghum
6 grams of Ford Hook Chard
4 grams of Connecticut Field Pumpkins
4 oz of White Proso Millet
4 oz of Peas
2 oz of Oats
1 oz of Flax
1 pkg of Tobacco

Sustainable Seed Company also sent me their new Happy Hen Nesting BoxWhat makes this nest box so special?  It is made here in the USA by a nonprofit that gives jobs and life skill opportunities to adults with disabilities. The box is beautiful and well-crafted, but to be honest, I really don't have the space for it in my small coop. However, when my family and I entertain guests in our backyard, our hens spend quite a bit of time in our side yard away from their coop so this nesting box will be perfect in that location just in case they get the urge to lay!

If you are interested in growing your own feed you can purchase a Poultry Package for $28.99.  
Purchase a Happy Hen Nesting Box for $16.99.

Cheers and Happy Planting!
