At Ballut Farm Ltd we strive to keep our hens in top conditions to make sure our process is safe for them and for our clients who eventually purchase the final egg product. Our farm is split in other different farms according to the type of egg process and is inspected every 2 weeks by our Vet. Also the Maltese Veterinary Department and other private laboratories carry out regular checks randomly for salmonella and other diseases.

The hatching process is done in Marsa in partnership with the best quality hatches. From Day 1 we take care of the chickens that hatch out of the egg shell by providing them clean water and a nutritious feed for a healthy life. We make use of the latest feeding and drinking systems on the farm.
2. PULLET FARM
As our tiny chicks start growing healthily in our pullet farms around Malta their first feathers also start showing. In the pullet farms, chicks are at the point of lay. They start laying their first eggs at 16 weeks old. Their small eggs are known as pullet eggs.
