Forager Chickens

My Forager Chickens are bred to be very active in searching for bugs, plants, and other delightful snacks.

They tend to have more fat than my Broad Breasted chickens, which makes amazing gravy! I think the flavor of the meat is more tasty than the Broad Breasted. 

These chickens end up eating more feed than my white Broad Breasted birds, and are harder to process for sale.  Also, with their darker feathers, they are more difficult to clean up nicely for you.  These factors make for a slightly more pricey option than my Broad Breasted chickens.

We give them our scraps, and they love watermelon rinds.

Alfalfa leaves are very nutritious and our birds love it!
