We purchase quality day old chicks and rear them cage free on the floor in our own barns.
This gives them a chance to acclimatize to our area whilst we insure they get the best and most healthy rearing possible. We use a custom diet containing no animal products, no hormones and no routine antibiotics. We follow a strict health and bio-security routine, regularly testing their health and their environment to ensure good health and growth.
At 17 weeks of age, the hens are carefully moved a few hundred meters to their laying house where they will spend the next 63 weeks roaming around in their cage free environment. Here they lay their eggs in a hygienic nest box of their choice, whilst still being able to keep their feet in fresh shavings, take a regular shavings bath and interact with each other in the communal barn.
By using quality “on farm” reared hens, a custom diet, river fresh water, fresh air and our spacious open barns Finchley Farms is able to exclusively produce quality midlands Barn Eggs in a cage free environment.
We strive for an uncomplicated, stress free environment ensuring quality of life and best performance from our hens.
Fresh Natal midlands barn eggs from our Finchley Farms are now being stocked at an ever increasing amount of retailers across the KwaZulu Natal midlands, Howick, Hilton, Kloof, Durban and North Coast (Ballito).
