First of all Abaco Big Bird is fully independently owned family company. We grow, process, and package all of our chicken right here on the farm in Abaco. Our chickens are feed a corn and soy based diet especially formulated for Abaco Big Bird in close collaboration with nutritionists from another small family owned feed company in Florida.
Our chickens our cared for in large barn type houses that are climate controlled and cage free to protect them from weather extremes and predators. They are given access to food and water infused with neem (from natural springs in Abaco's pristine aquifer) to eat and drink at their pleasure. Our chicken is often process, packaged, and on the consumers plate in less than 24 hours even in Nassau. Giving families a great healthy fresh product to choose from versus imports that are shipped from all around the world. This also helps the environment with less greenhouse gases via reduced trucking and shipping.
