A lot of chicken companies cut corners by feeding their chickens all sorts of animal by-products. But PERDUE® chickens are always fed a 100% vegetarian diet, including locally sourced corn and soybeans, and marigolds. And we never use added hormones or steroids.* Because we believe that if you wouldn't feed it to your family, we shouldn't give it to our chickens.

*Federal law prohibits the use of hormones
or steroids in poultry.

All chicken is inspected by the USDA, but Perdue asked the USDA to go even further—in our hatcheries, feed mills and the family farms where our chickens are raised. The USDA verifies that all our chickens are fed a 100% vegetarian diet, with no animal by-products, and cared for in a clean, safe environment.

Back in 1920, Arthur Perdue started selling eggs and quickly earned a reputation for quality that continued as he began to sell chickens. In the '50s, Arthur's son, Frank, made this higher quality his guarantee. Then in 1991, Frank's son, Jim, took the helm, and he began guiding Perdue to become the innovative chicken company it is today.
