We start our Cornish Cross meat chickens in brooders and transfer them to outdoor chicken tractors once they are old enough to tolerate more fluctuations in temperature.
The chicken tractors provide access to the outdoors, plenty of ventilation and shade, and (most importantly) protection from predators.
We move our chicken tractors one to two times a day to provide our chickens with clean grass and fresh forage. This keeps our chickens clean, protects the ground from over-scratching, fertilizes the ground, and keeps the chickens interested in pecking the next round of bugs instead of each other. How’s that for multi-tasking??
Once the chickens are mature (about 8 weeks for Cornish Cross), they are processed on-farm with the highest level of care and consideration and under sanitary conditions.
