Note* Our chickens range from 3-5 lbs. Please make a note during checkout on your order if you would like smaller or bigger chickens and we will try to accommodate as best as possible.
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 moveable pens and receive fresh pasture everyday. They are fed a chicken feed mixture of non-GMO feed. They are will be processed at a small state-certified processing plant in New Plymouth.
Note: Cunningham Pastured Meats is not personally raising the chickens, but a corporative producers in Star, she uses 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, where they have actual access to green grass and bugs.
