Every chicken is fed a wholesome diet that meets the species’ unique dietary requirements. Feeds are studied carefully by in-house poultry nutritionists who continually evaluate ingredients such as corn and soybean meal, natural limestone and phosphates, salts, vitamins, and mineral supplements. Our chickens are never fed antibiotics, growth stimulants, animal by-products, or hormones (which have been illegal in poultry production since the 1950s).
Organic Smart Chicken vs. Smart Chicken
Organic Smart Chickens are certified organic in accordance with the standards of the National Organic Program. As part of that certification, our certified organic chickens are fed a certified organic, certified non-GMO diet. The inability to source sufficient certified organic, certified non-GMO grains limits the number of certified organic chickens that Smart Chicken growers can raise.
Smart Chicken is committed to sustainable, humane practices that reduce stress on animals and provide better working conditions for employees. All of our chickens are cage-free, with plenty of space to roam, perch, dust bathe, and participate in other natural social behaviors. Our certified organic chickens are also free-range, which means they have access to outdoor pastures. In addition to contributing to a higher-quality product for consumers and their families, humane handling practices are simply the right thing to do.
