Food marketing has become a really big deal in recent years. One of my favorite bits of food marketing that you see is "vegetarian fed chicken." For some reason, food marketers have convinced us that vegetarian chickens are the healthiest chicken available. But there's one problem with this that many consumers have started to realize; chickens are not vegetarians. Chickens are omnivores. A vegetarian diet for a chicken is incredibly unnatural.
Yes, our Non-GMO chicken feed is all grains and minerals, making it vegetarian. And no our feed does not contain any animal by-products or anything strange like that. Where our chickens differ is that they're able to forage for the kind of proteins they evolved eating. These proteins include lots of bugs, some worms, and even frogs, snakes or mice if it's their lucky day.
Our chickens love to forage for a variety of sources and this includes animal proteins. We estimate that they get about 20% of their diet from the pasture. That's why it's important that we move them everyday; to keep the salad bar fresh, and the chickens healthy.
