Free-range Chickens

Free-range chickens are chickens raised in a way that allows them to roam freely outdoors, rather than being confined to a small indoor space or a cage. This type of chicken farming is often associated with more humane and sustainable practices, allowing the chickens to express more natural behaviors and live a more natural life.

In general, our free-range chickens are raised where they have access to the outdoors, through a small opening in their coop and a larger fenced-in area. They also are allowed to roam freely in the pasture or in our orchard eating the windfall fruit. Our Free-range chickens are fed a diet of grains, seeds, and insects, and are also given supplements such as vitamins and minerals.

There are many benefits to raising chickens in a free-range environment. Free-range chickens tend to be healthier and more resistant to disease than chickens confined to small spaces, as they have access to fresh air, sunlight, and a varied diet. Flynn Farm Fresh free-range chicken eggs are considered to be of higher quality, as the chickens can forage for their own food and have a more varied diet.

As a side note, it is essential to understand that the term “free range” can be somewhat misleading, as it is not regulated by any specific standards or guidelines. As a result, it is important to do your research and choose a reputable farmer or producer if you are interested in purchasing free-range chicken products.
