Product Description

Naturally Free Organic Layer is a Non-GMO Project Verified and Certified Organic product. We use a blend of organic whole grains grown in the Pacific Northwest.

Our Layer Feeds are designed to be the healthiest and most natural product available for your laying hens. While all of our products are soy free, our Naturally Free poultry feed line is both soy free and corn free.

Naturally Free Organic Layer contains a high amount of calcium and slightly lower protein levels than our Naturally Free Organic Grower. The calcium is used by hens to produce strong eggshells and should only be fed to birds that are laying or will lay in the near future. The grains are left naturally whole in this feed rather than highly processed into pellets.

This feed is suitable for ducks, geese and all waterfowl.

Your hens should be approaching their full grown size at approximately 20 weeks of age. Begin introducing Naturally Free Organic Layer gradually to allow for a slow adjustment to the new feed formula. This is more important when switching from a different type of feed such as crumbles or pellets as your chickens may not immediately know how to consume a mash style feed. Be sure to offer fresh water, plenty of Cluckin’ Good Layer Grit and you can begin to supplement oyster shell at this age.

Feel free to continue offering Organic 3-Grain Scratch or Organic Scratch n’ Corn by tossing around their run to promote foraging (scratching and pecking) or use as a training tool!

You can also boost the nutrients by fermenting your flock’s feed. Browse our Helpful Guides for more resources on how to use our feeds to optimize your flock’s health.

Can I feed this to my ducks, geese, or other waterfowl?
My birds aren’t laying this time of year. Is it okay to switch to Naturally Free Organic Grower instead of Layer for winter as they don’t need the added calcium/minerals in the layer?

    I can’t say enough about this feed! We free range our flock of thirteen hens on six acres here in Washington and supplement their diet with 4 pounds of food every night during the cold months. Last winter we were feeding Purina Layena Sunfresh and had no layers. This winter we switched to Scratch and Peck 18% Layer and have been getting 7-10 eggs every day! We also give our family milk cow the Scratch and Peck Barley and Oats. Love these products!

    I admit I was skeptical about this feed (Naturally Free Layer) and the much higher price than my normal pellet feed. I have 2 grandsons with many food allergies and they definitely can’t eat anything with all the soy and corn found in the pellets so I decided to give it a try. When it arrived and I opened the bags I was surprised to see the feed looked like what I remember from feeding our chickens as a kid. It smelled good and looked good enough to eat myself. I have been feeding the flock (6 hens and a rooster) this for almost a month now. My chickens freerange my 20 acre farm but they won’t leave the coop until after they are full now. Before as soon as I opened the coop in the morning they were out the door and immediately exploring. I take that as a good sign that they like and enjoy the feed. I also noticed egg production is up. I was normally getting about 22-24 eggs a week from them and now I’m getting 25-28. I can only attribute that to the feed as everything else is the same. I highly recommend this feed.

    My chickens swarmed the feeder when I filled it with Naturally Free Layer! I was initially worried because they were eating so much. I love this product and so do my chickens. Problem is, I’m going through the feed twice as fast because they are eating so much more!

    Amazing feed, and worth every penny. I have one of the healthiest and better looking flocks around, and I owe it all to their this feed. I also mix in the starter kit supplements so my flock digests their food better, and as a treat I give my hens three-day fermented NF 3-Grain, which drives them nuts (

    Feeding this to our flock of 6 free-ranging Ancona and Cayuga ducks. They love it, look super healthy, and are laying well year round. I am allergic to corn, so very pleased to be able to find a corn-free feed for my flock.

    Our daughter is allergic to corn(and all corn derived ingredients) and so we opted to get our own hens. Little did I know how difficult it would be to find corn-free chicken feed! I was so grateful when I found your product and even more thrilled when my hens love it! They free range half day and I find them wandering in now and then for a quick nibble! They love it. They have laid since January at 20 weeks old (even the guinea hen’s and Easter Eggers!)on this feed and free range- we could not be happier!

    My ladies have been on organic scratch and peck feed sense they were one day old. They absolutely love this feed! In fact I went through a bit of a rough patch and had to by the organic feed from my local feed store and my chickens went on an actual hunger strike!!! They didn’t eat until I bought scratch and peck again(No worries I rebought the feed right away). I definitely will be a life long customer with scratch and peck feed.

    • Not happy to hear about their hunger strike (chickens with attitude!), but we’re thrilled to hear that they love our feeds!

    My flock is loving this feed!I was feeding organic layer pellets from another company but wanted a soy free ,corn free alternative & I mixed both feeds so they could get used to it and was surprised to see them kick the old food out to get to this one. Thanks for making great feed!

    I have 12 Laying Hens and had purchased food from a local feed store, but they didn’t really care for it so when I gave them your feed they have been eating like little pigs! I’ve been getting 10-12 eggs daily. Thank you so much for very quality feed…well, my chickens thank you; I haven’t tasted it. :0)

    I have tried other feed and my girls love this. They attack it in the morning and there is no waste. Thank you for providing an outstanding product that I know is safe and that I’m sure tastes as good as it looks!!!

    We have 10 hens and 4 ducks. Using this feed we get about 65 to 70 eggs per week total. They are delicious eggs. We give away 1 or 2 dozen per week to friends or co-workers and they all say they are the best eggs they have ever had. We live in the high Rockies (10,500′) in a small community and there are at least ten other persons raising and selling their eggs. Everyone says ours are much better. We don’t sell them but have turned down offers of twice the price of the going local price. We raise dogs and they get their share also. The vet has asked what our secret is for their being so healthy and having such beautiful coats. Easy: poultry raised on Scratch & Peck Naturally Free.
    Thank you. A product that is simply the best.

    Our girls love this feed. We did our research, and even though we live in North Carolina, we are happy to be able to have Scratch and Peck shipped here.
