The Free Range system is one of the biggest trends in the world, as it values animal welfare practices.
After all, nothing better than a FREE CHICKEN THAT IS FREE TO PECK, LAY EGGS IN THEIR FAVORITE NESTS and TAKE SAND BATHS at their will.
In the Free Range system, chickens are free from cages and with complete freedom to express their natural behavior. They have access to the outside area of the farm to socialize and walk around the arena.
Meanwhile, they also have the freedom to rest within the pavilion, which has its soil covered with pine shavings and where the best natural food and water are available to them.
In the farm the chickens can also express their natural hierarchy on the perches, where more dominant chickens always stay in the highest parts.
It's the chickens that choose which space to visit, having the certainty of a refuge from bad weather, strong sun and predators. They live in peace and at their own pace. In the arena they are protected by our Atlantic Forest vegetation and can walk around at their will.
Organic eggs have a system very similar to Free Range, however, their production is organic with several requirements to have this denomination.
Organic feeding is the basis of organic egg production and while it is 100% natural, it is composed of grains that are organic and have not undergone genetic changes. There are also precautions with the medication used in the management of chickens, since the use of antibiotics is not allowed.
Organic egg production chickens also have a wide arena to express their natural behavior, and with the benefit of refuge in the farms where they will find their food, water and perches necessary for their optimal development.
Our chickens are free to roam, scratch through the grass, and take a nice sunbath. Our paddocks have adequate spaces with green pasture so that they feel good and express their natural behavior.
During the night, in times of rain, or when they feel the need, they can take shelter inside the sheds. The environment is totally adequate, to provide thermal comfort for the chickens. It is inside the farm that they feed, drink water and lay their eggs.
In nature, chickens look for tree branches to take shelter during the night, this way
to provide the most natural environment possible, inside the farm there are
perches, where they can sleep.
The perches also have another function, within the group the chickens themselves establish a degree of dominance with each other, they are totally hierarchical, in a short time they make this division and everything flows naturally.
Perches help to delimit this division, where the strongest are always in the highest places.
