WHAT DO YOUR CHICKENS LIVE IN?

WHAT DOES PASTURED MEAN AND HOW DOES IT DIFFER TO FREE RANGE?

Pastured means that the chooks are always outside with access to fresh pastures for them to scratch through. Pastured usually means lower stocking densities with our chookies being at 350 hens per hectare. “Free range” can mean chooks living in sheds with access to outside through a door, while also living at much higher densities – up to 10,000 hens per hectare.
