they've got everything you could need in a reasonably easy to get to location and their staff was always helpful, however my last experience was horrible!! enough so to make it my last experience. i have critters that need a specialized diet. hiedens's was the only place i knew of that carried the food i needed. apparently, i was the only one to buy this feed and once i had purchased all of their stock, they neglected to order more. why should they? only one person buys it 1 time a month? i understand. the space for that one product could be filled with a better mover. i've worked retail i know how that part works. but the last time i needed to buy, i NEEDED to buy! i was out and my furries needed to eat! i had to settle for the very super last bag that was ripped open and retaped (missing some product) and turned out to be FULL OF WEEVILS AND MOTHS! i didnt realize this until AFTER i had been asked with a smile to pay FULL PRICE for the VERY subpar product. if my business is appreciated in THAT way i can so go somewhere else. i did. i no longer have to drive 35 minutes to maybe get what i came for and they don't have to carry a product that doesn't sell well.
I travel quite a distance to go to Jensen feed. They staff is very friendly and helpful. You don't have to carry a thing to your car.Their prices are great and the feed is clean and fresh.The horse tack is well made and the hay usually a heavy bale. I also buy bird seed in bulk and they have colorful companion at a bargain. They have chicks, chickens, pigeons, and an array of all sized caged pet birds from finches to parrots. They have always been in cages that were clean, with fresh food and water. They have seasonal plants and bushes at prices that beat Walmart. I got the best tomatoes and strawberries last year. I sound like an advertisment but really I expected the worst when I saw all the livestock there but I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of upkeep. It is obvious they take pride in their establishment.
Earlier today I purchased 4 ducklings and some basic supplies from the Hieden Feed and Supply store. I was a little concerned that they didn't know the exact breeds of the ducks they were selling, but I later identified all the chicks. The lady there was helpful and kind, and pointed us to several good products. Prices were good, and I went home happily with my new ducks. Unfortunately, maybe 20 minutes after I brought them home, one of them started loosing control and had what looked like some sort of awkward seizure. Within 5 minutes, she was dead. I'm not positive on what caused this, but my best guess is inbreeding, which causes my review to drop 2 stars.
