100% Antibiotic Free Chicken

‘100% antibiotic free chicken’ means that The Bare Birds never receive any kinds of antibiotics at any stage in their lifecycle.

The World Health Organization is concerned with the rising levels of antibiotic resistance.  The less we are exposed to antibiotics, the more effective they will be when we need them.

Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health, food security and development today

THE ANTIBIOTIC FREE CHICKEN STORY

HOW CAN WE PRODUCE CHICKEN WITHOUT ANTIBIOTICS?

Healthy birds in healthy environments simply don’t need antibiotics.

We keep our birds healthy by feeding them a vegetarian diet of grains, seeds, legumes, and oils, with prebiotics, probiotics, and essential oils for a nutritionally balanced diet. We have a strong focus on biosecurity and cleanliness on our farms and our dedicated team take great care of our chickens!

The world urgently needs to change the way it uses and prescribes antibiotics.

BIRD WELFARE

Bird welfare has and always will be our highest priority. If The Bare Birds were ever to fall ill and require antibiotic medication, we would administer it. We would not sell those chickens as The Bare Birds.

THE HORMONE AND STEROID MYTH

It has been illegal in Australia for more than 50 years to administer hormones or steroids to chicken. No chicken you buy anywhere in Australia will have added hormones or steroids.
