Who doesn’t love the look of a sunny egg on a breakfast plate?
Many of us keep hens just so we can enjoy the beauty, taste and perfect nutrition their eggs bring to our lives. We love seeing hens scratch around looking for tasty bits to eat, and we love it when they come running to us for a treat. Summer is good!
But what about the winter months, or rainy months, or times the flock can’t get outside to harvest the greens and bugs they love? Our Sunshine in a Pellet™ supplement is the answer.
The traditional solution to this problem is to feed the birds corn when green grass isn’t available. The corn’s vivid yellow maintains the yolk color even in the rainiest climates. And the birds love corn’s taste. But GMO corn is hard to avoid. We still want the many health benefits signaled by the bright yolks, but without the GMO corn.
Years of research, use of traditional herbal ingredients and on-farm testing led us to the development of an all-natural nutrition booster designed for the home flock. Compounded by our owner/nutritionist and tested in the field by family farmers, this blend of natural antioxidants, color and vitamin-rich botanicals and Vitamins A and D gives you and your hens many of the benefits of summer pasture throughout the year.
We form pellets from a base of Willamette Valley wheat and add real marigold meal, paprika, garlic, horseradish, star anise oil, juniper oil, oregano and other botanical extracts and sources of phytonutrients. We add Vitamins A, D and E to this easy-to-feed, waste-free pellet that hens love. Give it to them as a treat or mix it with their ration. Your hens and your family will enjoy the healthy benefits of this wholesome supplement and your eggs will be bright as summer all year long.

Feeding Directions: This is a treat to be fed in addition to a complete feed not to exceed 10% of the birds’ feed, as too much will dilute the balance of nutrients in the complete feed. Adjust feeding levels to achieve the color you want to see in the eggs. Provide plenty of fresh, clean water. Introduce new feeds gradually. Do not feed old, moldy or insect infested feeds.
