Cornish Cross chickens from Hawkins Sisters Ranch are raised in open air hoop houses on a deep bedding of sustainably harvested, soft-wood chips. The birds are fed a custom-blend of local wheat and peas mixed with minerals, fishmeal and enzymes.They have a generous rotating yard in the hay field and never receive hormones or antibiotics. The birds are harvested at 9 to 10 weeks old and have rich chicken flavor and lots of tender breast meat. They average 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 pounds ($5.50/lb. or approximately $23.00 per bird). Your invoice will be adjusted to reflect the weight of the bird you receive.
