THE BLUE GOOSE PROMISE:
TAKE CARE. EAT WELL.
At Blue Goose we are committed to farming and ranching practices that put the welfare of the animals first. Our promise to you as a consumer is that Blue Goose will always ensure that our animals are humanely treated, and proudly raised by a Canadian family farm.
We believe in cage-free environments and farms that are never overpopulated. We take pride in the high quality food we produce and these are the standards we hold ourselves to.
N° 1 - ACCESS TO OUTDOORS
Blue Goose chickens, when the weather permits, have the ability to leave their barns and access vegetation covered pasture. The outdoor area is monitored for predators and any objects that could harm the chickens. Whilst many chickens are content with the comforts of a barn, during an average day, a proportion of the chickens will venture outside and return to the barn at their leisure.
N° 2 - NUTRITIOUS FEED
Blue Goose chickens are raised and tended to by farmers who take pride in their welfare and ensure that they are fed a nutritious, vitamin enriched diet, that is 100% vegetable feed with no animal by-products. A bird must travel no more than 13 feet to access its water and feed.
N° 3 - NO ANTIBIOTICS OR GROWTH PROMOTANTS
No antibiotics are allowed with Blue Goose chickens.
N° 4 - FREE RANGE BARNS
No cages, wires or slotted floors are permitted. Birds must be free to express their natural behaviours.
N° 5 - LOWER STOCKING LEVELS
Blue Goose farms allows for double the space of conventional birds. This allows Blue Goose chickens more space per chicken to move in the barns than conventional barn raised chickens.
N° 6 - NATURAL BALES AND PERCHES
Hay bales and perches are placed in our barns to provide enrichment and activity for the chickens.
N° 7 - LOW STRESS TRANSPORTATION
Care is taken when individually catching birds. No overcrowding is allowed and noise must be kept to a minimum during transportation.
