Miller Poultry Chicken Facts and helpful information
Our chicks are hatched at our own hatchery and placed primarily on Amish family farms. The birds are raised inside naturally ventilated, curtain sided, houses and are free to roam on open floors. They are fed an all-vegetable, drug free diet and are hormone and antibiotic free.
Antibiotic free -our chickens are raised on all vegetable feed that is ground at our feed mill from corn and soybeans. No antibiotics are added. Labels can be confusing – with terms like “free-range” on the label it does not mean that it is antibiotic free. There is no requirement that free-range chickens be antibiotic free.
All Vegetable fed – The feed is a mixture of corn, soybeans, minerals, salt and vitamins that is mixed at our own feed mill and there are no animal by products, animal fats or coloring added, never.
Are Miller Poultry chickens “free-range”?
- Miller Poultry chickens are raised primarily by Amish families in smaller flocks. While they are free to roam within the chicken house, they are not “free-range” for several reasons. Free-range chickens are often found outdoors, where they are challenged by weather, disease and the risk of airborne contaminates. Baby chickens need to be warm and dry during the first two weeks of their life and could not survive the elements.. Also older chickens would be under extreme stress in temperatures colder or warmer than ideal with our midwestern weather, which could lead to extreme stress or even cause death. Miller chickens are raised in a stress-free environment where they have access to fresh water and feed with natural light and ventilation and are free to roam within the chicken house on open floors. The chickens are cared for by peace loving Amish families.
