Feeding your hens
For healthy hens and a good egg supply, it is important to feed your hens well - producing an egg a day is a lot of work!
We supply Farmgate layers pellets, which provide a complete balanced diet for egg-laying hens, ensuring they get all the calcium and other nutrients they need. No additional supplements are necessary, although giving your hens access to grass will ensure a rich, orange yolk.

Automatic door keepers
Automatic door keepers are small electrical devices which attach to your chicken coop above the pop-hole. Connected by a string or wire, the door keeper can be set to automatically open and close the pophole at the times you want. Often set for dawn and dusk, the hens soon learn to go in before the door closes.
Automatic doorkeepers offer two main benefits: convenience and security. No need to rush around before work letting the hens out, no constant need to remember to shut them in at night. From a security standpoint, setting your timers correctly ensures hens are safe inside the coop during the hours that foxes and other predators are out and about. Whether you are out for the evening or caught in traffic, there is no need to worry that darkness is falling and the hens have not been shut in.
