Raising free-range chickens isn’t that difficult – and both the chickens and the eggs are a whole lot healthier than the kind you find at the supermarket. This quick video shares some helpful tips on how to raise your own.
As you may already know, “cage-free” and “free-range” labels don’t always mean what you think they should when it comes to chicken and eggs.
Cage-free simply means the chickens aren’t confined to individual cages – but they may still have no space to move around, and may even be less healthy than some caged chickens. “Free-range” sounds nice, but there are no restrictions on where the chicken ranges – it could just be a bare dirt yard or a concrete slab!
The best way to make sure your chickens (and eggs) live the lives you want them to lead (hopefully happy and healthy ones, where they get to range around outdoors and forage as they like) is to raise them yourself!
It’s not hard to do – chickens are one of the easiest animals to keep – and this quick video shares the basics needed to raise your own truly free-range chickens.
