Chicken Facts

Free Range Chicken

Free-range chicken is not used to make the general range of Lenard’s Chicken fresh products. Hot Roast Chickens sold at our new stores are free-range.

If requested by customers and where demand can be demonstrated, some stores do sell fresh free-range chicken and this would be clearly identified by its packaging. Free-range chicken is identified with the Free Range Egg and Poultry Association logo.

The difference between free-range and regular birds is that meat chickens are raised in large, purpose-built chicken sheds where the chickens are able to move around at will with easy access to food and water. Free-range chickens are free to roam in the external environment but are generally housed from sunset to sunrise as protection from predators. Free-range chickens are free to forage outdoors but are generally fed indoors to discourage predators.
