Everything for your backyard chickens, from food to bedding.Articles may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

SPONSORS



Over the years, I've tried a good many of the chicken products available on the market. My chickens have sampled and tested all kinds of treats, feeders, bedding and other products.

We've loved some and hated some. I am constantly asked for recommendations from readers and asked by companies to review their products.

I find myself using some companies and brands over and over because their products, customer service, price and quality are superior.

I only work with the best, so here for your shopping convenience are some of my favorite products and companies that I personally have used and highly recommend.
