Our chickens enjoy access to grass, bugs, and Nebraska sunshine!
Our approach to raising chickens is definitely different than the conventional way of doing it. Most chickens raised for egg production will be in a confinement lined with wire cages no bigger than a piece of letter sized paper which house the chicken for its entire life. These chickens never have outside access and most of them are debeaked in order to survive in these conditions. They are fed rations of food that keep them cranking out eggs. They are usually medicated to "prevent" them from getting sick in these unpleasant and stinky enviornments.
So what's the difference? Our chickens have 24-7 access to the fresh air of the outdoors. They are able to roam free and eat grass and bugs outside with the safety of sleeping in the coop at night.We benefit from our chickens grazing outside as they hunt insects and naturally fertilize the land. Our chickens are not medicated and are given fresh water and food daily. We are proud of the quality of our eggs and the way we raise our birds here at Fancy Pants Farms and we hope you enjoy and taste the difference in range free eggs!
