Our chickens & ducks are free to roam in our fields and have access to grass all year. We can not really call our eggs free range as Free Range is an accredited status, for which you have to apply and pay for .
We only keep a small flock of birds, for our pleasure and to supply eggs for our household.
WE FEED OUR CHICKEN, DUCKS & GEESE QUALITY FEED
In order for our birds to lay the number of good quality eggs they do, we supplement their diet of grass & forage with layer pellets & corn. This is normal for modern poultry in order to keep them healthy and ensure they lay lovely eggs.
Because we are conscious of what we eat, we feed all of our birds quality food, containing natural ingredients that contain no Genetically Modified crops or chemicals.
Unlike the majority of feed available, even though this costs more, we believe in quality.
We know, it is better for our animals, which produce more wholesome eggs, and in turn are better for us!
POULTRY RAISED MORE NATURALLY
All of our chickens are hatched by us.
We don't believe in bringing in new chickens to our flock. We hatch all of ours chickens from eggs. Why? We believe that by doing this we keep our girls healthy.
From experience, we know there is less risk of brining in disease and pests and as a consequence this improves our bio-security, and keeps our livestock healthy and happy!
