Five thousand breeding hens died in a barn fire southeast of Steinbach Thursday afternoon.
When Steinbach RCMP and the local fire department arrived on scene the building was completely engulfed in flames.
Nobody was injured and the fire did not spread to any of the other buildings around it, but the barn was completely destroyed.
The Office of the Fire Commissioner is investigating the cause of the fire, but it does not appear to be suspicious.
