Black/ Red Feather Chickens are a slow-growing breed that caters to traditional European and Asian tastes. The farms raise this breed in order to fulfill the new immigrants’ demand for a chicken that reminds them of the old country. The breast is shallow, but the legs and thighs are meaty. Preferred by dark meat lovers.
The chickens are free-roaming, slow grown, and raised without antibiotics or hormones.
Our chickens are grown in our sister farm in New York State. We raise them in an in-closed arena because of diseases that birds outside the buildings may carry can be passed to our chicken. We keep our chickens indoors to keep them healthy and disease-free.
We feed them a healthy diet of only corn and soy beans. The corn is grown on our own sister farm, and we have a close relationship with our feed company, (Cochecton Mills).
