Large eggs from fully pastured bond black, non-debeaked hens.
Ali and Andrew Ruhle grow pasture raised, true free-ranging, dirt bathing, foraging, sunbaking, intact hens on their Darling Downs farm.
What we love, is that firstly, they shun the use of synthetic food colouring additives added to feed to enhance yolk colour (common in the organic/free range market) meaning there will be variations in the yolk depending on season, available grass and plantlife, and weather.
Secondly, Jalbirri do not stock beak trimmed (de-beaked) hens – a rarity in QLD, as most birds are de-beaked before sale.
And, if we needed another reason – Jalbirri stock one hen per 40m2 (compared to the industry standard of 1 hen per 1m2). Jalbirri hens enjoy a diet of bugs, grass and a protein mix made from locally farmed grains.
