Hi Barbara. We don't own any farms or processing facilities, but we can tell you a bit about how the chickens are raised. Poultry for McDonald's chicken products is raised primarily on family farms within a 120 km radius of Cargill's London, ON facility. The chickens are kept in climate-controlled barns to protect them against hot summers, cold winters, predators and disease. In these barns, the broiler chicks roam free on a floor that is covered with a bed of straw or wood chips. They have access to food and water through automatic feed and water lines. Farmers constantly monitor the barn environment. They will typically visit several times a day to make sure the equipment in their barns is working properly to control the temperature, humidity, light and ventilation at optimum levels for their birds. Birds are in cages only during the short period of time required to transport them from the farm to the chicken processing facility. You can see what the Cargill facility looks like in this video.
