      We Can't Keep Up With The Demand For Our Eggs

      Hands down the best layer pellet, and broiler feed out there! We’ve raised the best tasting broilers on this feed. Since switching to Elite Layer, our customers love our eggs so much we can’t keep up with demand! We know it’s because our hens only eat Texas Natural Feeds!

      From a Customer: "Thank You!!"

      “I own a small Vacation Rental/ Farm Stay outside of Lafayette, LA. I have been a customer of my local feed store, Atlas Feed Mills since the early 1980’s, which is where I learned about your amazing feeds. I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am with your Texas Naturals Feed. I use your chick starter, laying pellets & now, your sheep & goat feed. I feel that you are what you eat. I love my critters & you can see the difference since I discovered your feeds a year or so ago.

      I see you don’t have an Instagram presence & you should. I think many people do not know about your feed. I definitely try to promote it on my two accounts – Bonneterrela & Rockadoodledeaux. I see other folks are using a hashtag for you too. I hope you’ll consider starting one. I’m sending this, I suppose, from a selfish reason – I want your business to thrive & continue.
      Thanks so much!” Jen G.

      "I've been raising chickens for over 25 years . . .

      “I’ve been raising chickens for over 25 years and have been using your feed the last 2 or 3. I recently went to my feed store in Midlothian and they were out of your hen scratch. Since I was completely out at home, I went ahead and bought the much cheaper hen scratch. Yes, it’s true, it is much cheaper, but I can’t wait until this bag is empty and I can go back to the Texas naturals! I can definitely tell the difference in the quality and nutrition. And the chickens waste so much of the cheaper feed, I’m not even sure it is much of a bargain. Keep up the good work so we can keep getting quality food for our chickens!” Thanks, Barbara

      I have been using Texas Natural Feeds...

      “I’ve been using Texas Natural Feeds since our local General Store started carrying it several years ago. It works wonderfully! And, it works simply and consistently. Our hens stay healthy and lay a lot of eggs. Its beauty is in the fact that it works without our intervention. We use the Elite line because it contains the Fertrell and Redmond Natural additives. Of course, all their feeds are non-GMO and non-soy.” Doug – Waco

      You are what you eat . . .

      Great stuff, my chickens look better, lay better and all around seem a lot healthier. You are what you eat, right? Kevin H.

      We love our chickens . . .

      We’d Love To Hear From You!

      If you are using Texas Natural’s Non-GMO and Non-Soy feeds, there are other folks out there who would like to know what you think. We know there are cheaper feeds and you are probably not the type who spends more money unless you are getting something in return. Here’s your forum to let the world know!
