Good Layer Housing“Healthy eggs come from happy chickens”
Since 2011, Shih An Farm introduced cage equipment in compliance with the EU regulations of animal welfare and is Asia’s first egg layer farm that fully uses the equipment in compliance with these regulations. Shih An Farm owns Shih An Farm owns Humane monitoring" logo ( for Humane animal production systems) and Friendly animal products" logo (for Friendly production systems).
Shih An Farm raises its pullet from day 1 after they are hatched and provides them comfortable space for growth. Automatic watering raising method is applied. Totally-enclosed automatic equipment is introduced to adjust humidity and temperature that are most suitable for layers with the computer.
Inside the enriched cages that care for animal welfare, each layer on average can have a space about 750 square centimeters for them to walk and rest. There are also areas for games, claw Shortener, and perches for layer to show their true spirit. Egg laying nests are separately planned to allow layers to lay eggs in a relatively secured environment.
There is no forced molting on the Farm. The “nanny” team including veterinarians, nutritionists, advisors, and Farm Quality Assurance Group are specifically responsible for health management of the layers, and they care for the layers’ health from time to time.

Smart feeding“Three Nos for feeding to boost immunity with feed”
No drug injection, no antibiotics feeding, no feeding of animal protein
Natural grain based vegetable formula is used in feed to boost the immunity of layers with feed
Comprehensive feed formula is provided to layers according to their ages. At the same time, data is analyzed to conduct animal-friendly dynamic raising management for growth conditions of individual layers.
Safe feed without chemical compounds, drugs, or antibiotics certified by ISO22000/HACCP. Main ingredients of feed include high quality corn, hydrolyzed soy protein (high quality protein), bacillus subtilis, reishi mushroom, selenium yeast, ganoderma lucidum polysaccharide, ginsenoside, and natural grain extract to boost layer health.
Feed is produced by independent production line and vehicles without chemical residues are used (also known as blank) to avoid cross-infection.
