Our flock of 50 hens and 1 rooster, Clarence, roam the pasture feasting on grass, bugs, worms, and whatever other treats they can find. We have Black Australorp and Dorking crosses, Rhode Island Red, Red Star, and Delaware hens. The girls are currently on pasture in a movable tractor. The fencing is moved every day to give them fresh grass to eat. We provide a calcium supplement for them and our non-GMO custom ration mix. Maxie and Zeke, our Great Pyrenees, stays in their area when not guarding the meat birds.
Eggs from a happy pasture raised chicken are different from store bought in many ways. They actually taste like something…an egg. Store bought eggs are bland and rubbery when cooked. Pastured yolks are bright orange/yellow, not the pale yellow of store bought. No matter how good it may sound, chickens are NOT vegetarians by nature. Store bought eggs are usually from chickens fed only grains. Pasture raised chickens eat what they are meant to eat…bugs, worms, slugs, frogs, snakes, grass. THIS is what makes the eggs taste sooooo good! Once you have an egg from a happy chicken who is raised on a natural diet, you will never want a store bought egg again.
