Animal welfare

animalwelfareAll Darwalla birds are fed on a carefully balanced diet of wheat, sorghum, soya meal, sunflower meal and other essential vitamins and minerals to ensure a very healthy and highly nutritious chicken.

Chicken meat is not a genetically modified food and hormones are not used in the chicken meat industry

Chickens at Darwalla Group of Companies are grown to the requirements of the National Animal Welfare Standards for the chicken meat industry. http://www.chicken.org.au/page.php?id=241

The poultry houses in which we grow the chickens are environmentally managed so that the chickens are not exposed to climatic extremes and chickens are not grown in cages.

Darwalla Group of Companies employs a veterinarian with extensive experience in poultry in a senior management position. He has the responsibility for the health and welfare of our chickens throughout their life as well as ensuring that our chickens are wholesome and safe to eat.
