The Boschveld Chicken is a cross between three indigenous chicken breeds from Africa they are the Venda, Matabele and Ovambo. They are known for their incredible colours and beautiful looks as well as being able to produce eggs from a little bit of supplement feed and what they can forage outside. They are very hardy and lay very tasty eggs with a yolk that reminds you of an African sunset.
Our chickens live in a totally stress free environment with very little noise and pollution. The chickens have a large area they can roam in where they are able to forage for insects and dust bathe. We feed them green Lucerne daily that is brought to them by our mule carts.
Due to the fact that our chickens are happy and relaxed we do not have to “debeak” ( cut the beak when they are baby chicks- to stop them pecking each other) our chicken’s. They require very little medicine and they are farmed the natural way – like you great grandfathers did.
