Do you give FreeBird Chickens antibiotics?

Posted on September 28, 2012

No. Never. Neither Organic FreeBird Chicken or Antibiotic-free FreeBird are ever given antibiotics.

We should point out that many conventional poultry companies give their chickens antibiotics–even when they aren’t sick. They do this because they crowd the chickens in the houses where there is more possibility of disease being passed back and forth.

Because FreeBirds are raised in roomier, stress-free environments there is much less chance of them getting sick and they are more able to develop their natural defenses.
