Free Range Chicken: What’s the difference?

We often hear the terms “Caged”, “Cage Free” and “Free Range” when referring to Chicken. These terms refer to the way chickens are kept and raised during their lifetime.

What do these respective terms mean?

Caged Chicken refers to chicken that are kept in small battery cages, often with more than two or three chickens at a time. These are often very cramped, and cause high levels of stress among the chickens.

Cage Free refers to chickens that are kept in large barn spaces. These spaces often hold upward of one thousand chickens, with around 30 square centimeters per chicken. This often results in poor air quality and health for the chickens.

Free Range chickens refer to chickens that are allowed to roam outdoors and move naturally. They breathe in fresh air and have lower stress levels resulting in healthier animals.

So why are free range chickens better?

Free Range Chickens are generally a higher quality product than chickens raised with other methods due to lower levels of stress and a more natural lifestyle. This results in tastier meat from a more natural raising process, with more protein due to more developed muscles from roaming outside.

In essence, a healthier chicken raised in a stress-free environment results in a better, higher quality product.
