Our local Chicken Coups Compared to the Big Corporations.
Our Local Chickens
A standard chicken raised in one of the big production houses is confined to an area the size of an oven its entire life. Most "Organic" birds never see the light of day, never feel grass beneath their feet and never roam free in a pasture. Most chickens are pumped full of grains that make them so fat that their legs are often unable to support their weight in order to maximize their meat. To mitigate this, they are often injected with antibiotics that sturdy the legs and allow them to survive to six weeks. If you saw the life of these chickens you'll be convinced to support our local company. Unfortunately, the phrase organic and free range may not represent what you wanted. Organic simply means the
chickens' feed contain no unnatural fertilizers or pesticides. However, the chickens still canbe living their lives stacked two-high in a feed house, defecating on one another in a life
of chicken misery in a corporate setting. Most of these big-box chickens are de-beaked,
a process that involves half of the beak of each chicken being chopped off. We do not
feel this is fair and are committed to providing healthy alternatives to this all too
common practice. Most free range titles mean they are not in a cage but still are stuck
in a warehouse never to eat a blade of grass.
From a day old chicks, we take pride
and care for the health and safety
of our birds. Learn more about
