This might be a stupid question but just wondering what an organic chicken is? I know they are free range but what are they fed? Does this mean they eat bugs? How about the winter time? I am wondering becuase hubby and I want to get some chickens...what do we feed them? LOL!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy">

organic is not the same as free range. All organic means is that they were raised on organic feed, and not given certain drugs. They can be raised in chicken batteries same as conventional chickens.<br><br>
If you want to raise your own, head on over to the "Country Living" board, they'll have lots of advice on raising chickens.
