Note* Our large chickens range from 3.5 - 4.5 lbs.
The chickens are raised inside for the first 3 weeks until they are old enough to be outside, then the next 6 weeks they are in huge movable pasture runs and receive fresh pasture every day. They are fed a chicken feed mixture of non-GMO feed. They are processed at a small USDA certified processing plant in New Plymouth.
Note: Cunningham Pastured Meats is not personally raising the chickens. They are lovingly raised by a cooperative, like-minded producer in Emmett utilizing the same practices and non-GMO feed protocol we used when raising the chickens.
Here is exactly what is in the feed that we give the chickens (it is non-GMO, but does contain corn, soy, and wheat):
Please remember that we try our best to source quality feed for our chickens. It is extremely expensive to buy certified organic and it is also extremely hard to make a quality homemade mix feed for these chickens, they require a very specific diet. Also, chickens raised on pasture are very different from those raised in confinement situations. Our birds have actual access to green grass and bugs.
