Chicks in brooder house

Pasture Raised Chickens

Pasture Poultry are raised starting with day old chicks. These cross bred chicks grow faster and do not fly. We put them in a brooder house with heat lamps, food and plenty of fresh water. They live in the brooder house for about 2 weeks till they are fully feathered.

3 weeks of ageThen they are moved to portable houses on skids with no floor. They are free to eat the grass, seeds and bugs that are part of there natural diet. The portable houses are moved once a day for about the first 2 weeks and then moved twice a day to insure that there is always fresh grass and other natural elements for the chickens to eat. After 6 to 7 weeks the chickens are about 3 to 5 pounds and ready for market, during the process the pasture has been Naturally ferilized and allowed to grow for 6 to 8 weeks before any other animals are introduced.


7 weeks oldOur chickens are processed at a USDA inspected facility. They are fresh frozen 3 to 5 pounds. We ate the chicken most of last year till it ran out. My wife went to the store and purchased some chicken for dinner. And who was the first to ask what was wrong with the chicken , "it taste funny". This was my daughter who would not allow anyone to speak about what (who) we were eating for dinner. This is the first year that we are offering them for sale. They are 4.50 per pound for whole fryers.
