These birds live in mobile huts in small flock sizes, are hand-fed and bedded up daily with fresh straw.
As well as foraging in the pasture, from 4 weeks old, fresh herbs are introduced into the chicken’s diet. The herbs are a mixture including basil, chives, dill, coriander and various salads to name just a few. Their absolute favourite is rocket and when the odd chili arrives there is always a fight for it.
* We've searched high and low to find a Peak District producer of birds of this quality and welfare standards but without any luck so far (we are still looking though). That means that these birds are from neighbouring Yorkshire.
