Absolute Pastured Poultry – Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is “naturally raised, pastured” poultry?
A: The best chickens are more “naturally raised” and “pastured” by growing on new fresh green pastures daily. This means that they are never exposed to any antibiotics, growth hormones or animal by-products in their food. After the first 2-3 weeks, they are introduced to natural fields of pasture that have not been exposed to mass production agricultural practices or related chemicals for over 40 years. Unlike today’s mass production factory facility raised chickens (they are not farms), more naturally raised, pastured chickens actually see the sun, breathe fresh air, interact with nature and have fresh new green life to explore each day. They are free to enjoy a much more natural environment that lets chickens be chickens!
Chicken Season – June to October (contact us for this year’s details and information)
Chickens are available “per chicken, per pound” each season with average weight ranges between approximately 3.5 to 6.5 pounds due to differences in age, individual variations in size, weather conditions, etc. Custom meat orders require a pre-order reservation deposit per each chicken which are then raised to your specifications.
Pastured chickens are noted for producing excellent high quality, nutrient dense protein and flavor. These chickens are consistently rated by those who are knowledgeable chefs as “gourmet quality”. This level of quality can only be achieved through a “hands on” natural, humane, “best of the best” pastured approach.
We strongly encourage you to contact us as soon as you have determined the number of chickens you will be ordering for this year before or during the upcoming current season. All custom meat arrangements are by pre-order with a pre-order reservation deposit per chicken. This helps in planning and adjusting numbers being raised.

Q: Can chickens fly?
A: Who says chickens can’t fly! Hundreds of fowl whiz through the air after the farmer blows his whistle to gather his mountain ranging chicken flock for supplemental feeding. This video footage was recorded in China’s Guizhou province. Hundreds of chickens can be seen flying/gliding through the air towards the farmer. Most chicken breeds can (more or less) “fly” about 20 yards if motivated.
