Our poultry comes to us at 1 day old from a hatchery in Michigan. The baby chicks must be kept warm and dry (roughly 90 degree range the first week), and must be protected from predators. We start them inside in an incubator that we built. As soon as the birds are feathered, we move them outside to "chicken tractors" which are bottomless cages. Moved daily, they have access to forage in grass, clover, and bugs. They are also fed Non-GMO feed. No drugs, growth promoters, antibiotics, or steroids are fed- ever. Natural minerals & raw apple cider vinegar are supplemented to keep the birds healthy. New! Soy-Free Chicken! We are now offering pasture raised soy-free meat chickens. Why Soy-Free? Soybean meal is extensively used in many feeds to supplement the protein level. Health concerns due to plant based estrogen (phytoestrogens) lead many people to seek out food low in soy or without soy. We offer Whole Chickens, Cut-Up Chickens, Turkeys, and No-Soy Chickens. Poultry is processed by Bontrager Poultry Processor of Homer.
