These birds are grown naturally with plenty of open space in California. The natural variety is not fed wheat and is gluten free. The organic variety is not certified gluten free. Both varieties are fed corn and soy bean meal. Air-chilled is to prevent the spread of bacteria. No hormones or antibiotics are used on the birds.
