Helen’s Best Chick Starter Crumble 

Available in a 25lb or 50lb bag. 

For Chicks destined to become a part of the flock. Free feed from day 1 to day 30. Getting your chicks off to the best start possible lays the foundation for a lifetime of productivity and leads to a long, healthy, happy life in the flock. 

Helen Kruse, wife of O.H. Kruse Grain & Milling’s founder Otto Kruse, always kept a flock of chickens in the backyard to produce fresh meat and eggs for her family. Helen wanted only the best for her growing family and was insistent that Otto only use the healthiest, natural ingredients in all of the feed that his company made, since that was the feed she fed to the animals that were producing the food the Kruse family consumed. Helen’s Best Poultry Feed is our tribute to Helen Kruse and her insistence that we only produce the healthiest poultry feed possible, from our family to yours.
