Free range farming is important because it enables chickens to exhibit their natural behaviour. When they roam outside, they get access to sunshine, fresh air, and a variety of natural foods, all of which promote healthy and natural growth.
They are free to roam and forage for seeds, insects and worms and are unrestricted when it comes to establishing their natural social structures.
Our chicken’s safety and security is of great importance to us. We safeguard them in their coops at night from extreme or harsh weather and predators such as foxes. These specially designed barns offer feed and water which is always readily available and are built to ensure our chooks have the right warmth or cooling when needed.
A bed of locally produced sawdust or straw is provided to each new hatch of chickens, and the old beds get removed and converted to fertilizer on nearby farms.
Our chickens are happy to go outside each day when the doors of the coops are opened. We encourage a calm and fun environment for them, playing classical music to them daily and providing a variety of play gyms to entice physical activity.
