Our hens

Springfield Hens
Our hens are Hyline Browns. They live in flocks of 1,000 and are stocked at <750 birds per hectare. A lot of work is put into caring for our hens and their environment so they have the best chance of laying a delicious and nutritious egg.
You may have heard the saying ‘Happy chooks make happy cooks’. It’s absolutely true that real free range chooks kept in high welfare conditions and on fresh pasture lay better eggs. Chefs and home cooks alike tell us our eggs ‘hold together better’, poach well and lift the taste of their food to the next dimension.
We also re-home our hens at the end of their commercial laying time instead of slaughtering them. So far, all of our ‘old ladies’ have been adopted as backyard chooks and are living a happy retirement.
