Free range chicken
In the past years commercial free range chicken production is making an impact in the market. Sasso and kabirs are the most popular breeds that are being raised.
One reason why it is becoming popular is because of the cost to produce. Compared to commercial broilers, free range chicken doesn’t relay heavily in commercial feeds. You just need an area and let them peck anything that they can in the ground. But of course, you still need to supplement them with corn, agri by-products etc…
Another reason is that some say these breeds are more resistant to disease compared to the 45 days broiler.
Best of all, the native taste of these chickens which add aroma and taste to any chicken recipe you could imagine.
The only drawback of the this chicken is their slower growth rate compared to commercial chicken. But overall, as long as you have the market, it is a profitable business to do.
