Our eggs are always fresh and our chickens are ALWAYS allowed to pasture free range. My girls are NOT given any antibiotics or hormones and are spoiled with the best quality feed, fresh fruits, and veggies to supplement their free range diet. They are free fed (no rationing) and have their feed, poultry mineral blocks, oyster shells, and fresh water always available to them. The hens are provided an insulated chicken coop in the winter and a cooled run in the summer. They roam freely on over 10 acres of grassy area to eat all the natural food that is available to them.
