John Henry's Roaster Chickens are just a little bit bigger than our Fryer Chickens, averaging about 6-9lbs, and are just the right size for a large family or for sharing with company. Our chickens are free-range and we keep them in large pens that have huge open doors with access to the pasture as often as they want. Learn more about our farm-raised chickens in this video on our blog.
Our chickens enjoy being raised outside in the sunshine, scratching around in the dirt to find yummy things to eat. Because of their active lifestyles, our Roaster Chickens are extremely lean and have very little fat. Your cooking directions may need to vary to ensure that your meat is tender and juicy every time.

After cooking, use the leftover bones to make some healing bone broth!
All of our chickens here at John Henry's are fed a mix of non-GMO corn, oats, and peas, and they also love to scratch around in the dirt and grass looking for bugs... their preferred snack to eat! We raise them locally on our family farm, and they are never given any hormones or antibiotics. Our fields and feed are never exposed to harsh chemicals or pesticides. Our chickens are free range and spend their days being outside as much as they wish.
