The chickens have access to an appropriate wholesome vegetarian grain diet at all times. It is available in sufficient quantities so as to satisfy their diverse and complex nutritional needs. No fish meals or any animal by-products are used in the feed and no routine antibiotic or growth stimulants are added. The chicks consume about 150 grams of feed in the first seven days.
From day 8, they eat about 40 grams per day, and up to 190-200 grams of feed per day at the age of 40 days. Roaming and feeding outside on e.g. grass, supplements this basic food requirement.
