All Joyce's Gold farmers raise their birds naturally on pasture.
The birds are raised in small numbers and are able to use their natural foraging instincts under this system. The birds are not fed any growth promoters or artificial hormones
The birds are kept safe from predators, nice and warm in brooders until around 4 weeks and then placed outside to enjoy the outdoor conditions where they dust bath, eat insects and are allowed to be chickens. The Joyce’s Gold Heritage birds are then raised this way until 12-18 weeks to develop real chicken flavour.QLD HERITAGE POUTLRY Brisbane www.heritagehatchingandhens.com.au NSW BURRAWONG GAIAN Barraganyatti www.burrawonggaian.comTOPI OPEN RANGE www.topiopenrange.com.auwww.farmtofridge.com.auLITTLE HILL FARM Mt Vincent www.littlehillfarm.net.auVICTORIA MIRBOO PASTURED POULTRY Mirboo North www.mirboopasturedpoultry.com.au
