About Us

Today’s egg producers are facing challenges in this changing egg industry. For producers looking to transition to a cage free system, they will need the right breed of laying hens and resources to make the change from cage housing to cage free as smooth and successful. Efficient, docile, and capable of laying up to 500 eggs in its lifetime, the Dekalb laying hens are a perfect fit for the modern chicken farmer. We believe that new opportunities for success are ahead, and we are excited to help you conquer whatever comes next. The Dekalb parent stock are recognized for producing large numbers of hatching eggs, resulting in high amounts of saleable day-old chicks.
