Chooks At The Rooke
P.R.O.O.F. pasture-raised eggs and cockerels
Chooks At The Rooke located in Coorooke, South-West Victoria produces pastured Eggs and award-winning pasture-raised Cockerels (they won the 2021 ‘From the Paddock’ category of the delicious. Produce Awards).
In the egg industry male chicks are usually considered a waste product and euthanised at 1 day old. Chooks At The Rooke take the opposite, zero-waste approach and instead slowly pasture-raise the male chicks in a environment where they are free to roam and express their natural behaviours until 20-22 weeks, producing a delicious, richly-flavoured, highly-nutritious Cockerel meat bird supplied whole with the head & feet on, including the offal.
Chooks At The Rooke Pasture-Raised Cockerels also come with complete traceability via a QR code on each box which you can scan to find a detailed description of the Cockerels background, the farm and area they were raised, the grower (Xavier Prime), weights, time & location they were processed.
