Caring for the Hens – and the Environment

We are committed to being good stewards of the land and ethical caretakers for our hens. With a strict code of conduct and the guidance of our animal welfare professionals, everyone in the Daybreak family understands the importance of not just meeting industry standards, but also exceeding them.


Like any animal, hens create waste. Fortunately, it’s a great source of nutrients, so we sell it to farmers as fertilizer.

Wash Water

We reclaim and reuse water several times in our processing plant. When water has become waste, we use it to water crops.

Egg Shells

Shells are a great source of calcium. We spread them on fields or dry them and add them to our hens’ feed.
