Elgin Free Range Chickens
Our chickens are truly free range. Unlike commercial chickens, they are not kept indoors in environmentally controlled houses throughout their lives. We do not administer antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) to our chickens. In commercial chickens, AGPs are routinely administered to control micro-organisms in the intestines which in turn results in an unnatural growth rate. Routine Antibiotics fed to commercial chickens are identical to the ones administered to humans. Overuse of these antibiotics can lead to strains of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, allowing superbugs to flourish.
