Our hens have comfortable mobile homes/converted caravans that are paddock based and shifted regularly. It’s where they sleep safely and lay their eggs. They spend their day roaming about the paddock enjoying the country air.
The flexibility to shift hens is part of our holistic approach to land management. Soil is regenerated through rotational grazing which disperses nutrients across the farm. Hen health is optimised and consistent high egg quality can be maintained.
Supplementary feed is formulated by an experienced industry nutritionist and fills the gap in seasonal variations in paddock feed availability and hen health requirements.
Our hens are moved to fresh ground regularly. This prevents manure and subsequent pathogen build-up and allows for healthy natural fertilisation of our paddocks.
They have a wonderful free life and in return give us great tasting, nutritious paddock eggs.
