A cross between a Heritage Transylvanian Naked Neck, a Heritage Delaware, and a Peterson family line from the 1940s, these heirloom Pioneer birds were selected for leg strength and bone density, immune health, propensity to explore outdoors, and gastrointestinal health. They are robust, healthy & active which means a slower growth, higher bone density, & no need for antibiotics, ever.
Bred, raised and processed in Northwest Arkansas on 800 acres of pasture and forest, these chickens thrive outdoors from morning to night on their inherent omnivorous diet of bugs, grubs and grasses. Any supplemental feed they are offered is non-GMO and grown by local farms under regenerative practices.
The breed and raising practices directly translates to the health and flavor of the chicken, while air chilling locks in those natural juices and rich flavor from the skin to the bones. It is a vastly superior chicken in land impact, nutrition and flavor.
Pasture-raised with unlimited outdoor access.
High in antioxidants & Omega 3's, Vitamin A, and oleic acid.
No Antibiotics, ever. Average size 3.5-4 lbs.
