Black/ Red Feather Chickens is a slow growing breed which caters to traditional European and Asian tastes. The farms raise this breed in order to fulfill the new immigrants' demand for a chicken that remind 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 and raised in our sister farm in New York State. They are raised in a open arena, where they can run around free inside. We raise them inside a in-closed arena because of diseases that birds outside the buildings may carry can be passed to our chicken. We keep our chickens in doors 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).
