Herb Fed birds live in mobile huts in small flock sizes,
are hand-fed and bedded
up daily with fresh straw.
As well as foraging in the pasture, from 4 weeks old fresh herbs are introduced
into the chickens diet. The herbs are a mixture including basil, chives, dill,
coriander and various salads to name just a few. Their absolute favourite is
rocket and when the odd chilli arrives there is always a fight for it!
The only herb they don't like is sage!
We firmly believe that by adapting their diet in such a way it enhances the natural
flavour of the meat giving it an extra dimension. The meat also remains wonderfully
moist when cooked. Furthermore, pecking through the herbs keeps the birds occupied
resulting in a happy and extremely healthy bird.
