These are not the lazy modern industrial chickens engineered to gain weight so rapidly that their legs crush beneath them - instead, these are heritage breed birds that grow much more slowly and are perfectly suited for living a life on pasture. We raise our chickens on our lush green fields, moving them to fresh ground twice a day. Our birds actively forage for bugs, worms, and a full salad bar of plants and grasses including clover and dandelion. This high foraging content of their diet makes their meat extra high in CLA and Omega-3's. It is very typical for the fat to have a yellow hue, as this is a direct result of beta-carotene in the plants.
Since chickens are omnivores (not herbivores), they cannot live or thrive on grass alone. To supplement their pasture diet, our chickens also get a Certified Organic mix including field peas, barley, oats, sesame meal, crab meal, sunflower seeds, fishmeal, and a vitamin/mineral/probiotic mix. All of these supplements are Certified Organic, 100% Soy-Free & Corn Free, GMO-Free, Antibiotic-Free and Hormone-Free just like everything else we do.
