Cornish Cross on pasture

Cornish Cross close up
Our first
batch of Cornish Cross
getting close to their “retirement” age.

They do seem interested in
the pasture. We open a door and give them the option of staying in or
going out, but they don’t seem to forage much at all. I have yet to see
one scratch at the ground, which in my mind would be the best technique
for finding bugs.

We like the idea of eating a
chicken who lives more naturally, which is why we started experimenting
. I suspect the
benefit of these chickens will only be slightly better than a store
bought bird. Stay tuned for another update where we’ll post about the
taste test.
