Our Chickens Love Our Fruits As Much As We Do
People ask why we feed our chickens fruits, up to 40% of their diet, and not sell the fruits and use the proceeds to buy cheap grains like corn, since fruits, especially our certified organic fruits fetch such a high price? Well the answer is this: We Are What Our Animals Eat, health-wise that is. Bananas for example have an omega 6: omega 3 ratio of 1:1. Corn is 40:1. Chickens fed corn and other grains will have ratios of 40:1 and more. One chicken we had tested came in at 59:1. That's scary. And what about those chickens fed organic grains? Well, at the risk of sounding flippant, you will end up with 'organic' omega 6.
