J and L Farm and Stables has this to say about their Chickens:

Our flocks have averaged 170 in number for the past 4 years. Our hens have always been pastured, starting at around 14-16 weeks old. From 2 days old our chicks get no hormones, antibiotics, or animal by-products. Although our supplemental feed is conventional, it is non-medicated and contains no animal products.
