Meet Treats for Chickens CEO + Founder, Dawn
With thousands as an audience, Dawn Russell "D.R." is well-recognized as the creative energy and flow, the bts of Treats for Chickens. This made Treats for Chickens one of the most popular makers of natural and healthy chicken treats and other poultry goods in the USA.
A three-generation chicken parent, Dawn has been around chickens most of her life. During her childhood, she helped with her grandmother's farm and guided her son with his 4H Poultry project. When working together with her son's 4H project, Dawn's love for chickens sparkled again!
With no money after leaving the law world, Dawn had to start from scratch during the Great Recession no less. Dawn raised her backyard flock in the former "Egg Basket of the World," Petaluma, California. But not as a hobby. This path was Dawn's lifestyle and business.
And since Treats for Chickens' establishment in 2009, Dawn began her journey in sharing her poultry innovations and lifestyle- on Treats for Chickens’ blog, social media (Facebook and Instagram), and yes, even local fair farmer’s market booths. The path was lonely since she was the very few that did chicken treats. But along the way, Dawn connected with great individuals such as poultry keepers, farmers, and USA suppliers.
For she wants to offer fellow pet poultry parents healthy treats, supplements, and herbal nesting box blends with organic and non-GMO ingredients. And through hard work, it became the first pet-chicken manufacturer certified organic. That old saying, “you are what you eat,” is applied to people. Then why not your pet chickens and fowls? This isn’t just a saying; it’s what Dawn and Treats for Chickens’ team do day in and day out.
Thank you for being part of Dawn’s chicken run of happiness and health.
We love organic
Choosing organic mean leaving artifical ingredients off your poultry's beak, bum, wings, and life. Preserving the environments and saying "No" to GMO's. Our certified organic and organic sourced ingredients are made with cultural and biological pratices that support the cycling of on-farn resources, promote ecological balance and conservative bio-diversity in accordance with USDA organic regulations.
Let customers speak for us
Our ladies go wild as soon as they see the bags! Best feed ever!
Chicks love it. Different than the Crack but nice to switch it up now and then.
Our girls love EVERYTHING from Treats for Chickens! Just simply cannot say enough good things about their products. They are addicted to this product . . as well as the "Crack"! 🤣 All we have to do is rattle the bag & they come a running. . .
I consider my chickens pets and I love to spoil my animals!!! All I need to know about Chicken Crack is that my chickens go bonkers for it!!! It is a beautiful mix of healthy and delicious treats so I am 100% comfortable giving it to them!
I love them & I think the chickens do too! I sprinkle some in each nesting box & in the coop itself. They smell wonderful. I will definitely continue using them.
The Nesting Box Blend is my favorite. I use it in all the nesting boxes plus the coop floor in general. It is so clean and refreshing in the coop. The chickens seem to like it as much as I do.
The Water Protector Enzymes have been a lifesaver in the summer. (I do use it year round) it makes my water stay fresh so much longer. Before I started using this, my water slimed up and turned colors in a couple of days in the heat. Now I am much more comfortable with the quality of the water. I dont ever want to run out and have it on automatic reorder!!
I’m so glad I finally found a brand I can trust. This Nesting Box Blend helps freshen my nesting boxes and I know there is nothing harmful for my chickens. Now…please make a chicken FEED!
Loved it - it was a gift.
I have been using Cluck'n Sea Kelp for a couple years now and my girl love love love it!! The eggs they give back to me are so beautiful. I scatter it in their coop and also on the tray of greens that they get in the mornings. Dawn I certainly hope you continue to sell this product because I would be lost without it!!
My girls come running from the other side of the yard when I come out with the “treats” I swear they hear me opening the container I keep it in!!
My chickens and roosters love Chicken Crack and the other treats I get from you once a month. I mix them in with their feed, and there are never any leftover treats.Thank you!
I’ve been a faithful user of Healthy Hen Wellness Blend for over a year now! My girls feel and look amazing! That little extra all natural kick they need in their feed. A must for all chicken lovers!
Excellent quality, as with EVERYTHING from TREATS FOR CHICKENS!! Many of our neighbors have been complaining that their hens have stopped laying. We have been blessed to have an abundance of eggs virtually every day! Try the Healthy Hen Wellness Blend and see if it also makes a difference for you! 😉. Holly in Montana.
Good stuff and my girls seem to love it!
