Avg. 3 lb.

Note* Our small chickens range from 2.5-3.5 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):

  • Ground Non-GMO Corn- 25.32%
  • Roasted Cull Beans - 18.56%
  • Cull Peas - 24.90%
  • Non-GMO Soybean Oil - 3.18%
  • Premix (vitamins) - 3.41%
  • Wheat - 24.63%

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.
