The British Hen Welfare Trust has been working with the Little Feed Company, which was created by Hermione to provide an artisan-style alternative to major feed manufacturers, since June 2019.
The Little Feed Company puts animals’ health and the quality of ingredients at its core and supports local producers, choosing British ingredients where possible, and uses environmentally friendly packaging. Provenance is important to ensure ingredient quality and ethical production.
We first started selling the Little Feed Company’s Gastro Grit and Super Seeds, both of which quickly became two of our bestsellers.
What is it? A nutritious hen-ergy bar for pet hens packed with seeds, cereals, dried fruit, and nuts. It’s nutritious and highly hen-tertaining; perfect for enriching your girls if they’re feeling a little cooped up. It can be hooked on a wire run, hung from string or fed on the ground.
What is it for? Hen Pecked is the perfect treat for hens. It takes much longer to eat than loose seeds in a bowl, so will help to prevent boredom by keeping them busy longer.
