What’s Different about Heritage Breeds?

What’s Different about Heritage Breeds? 

 

The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy states that heritage chicken breeds must be an American Poultry Association (APA) standard breed. The chickens also must be allowed to mate naturally, lead a long, productive outdoor life, and maintain a slow growth rate. It takes heritage chicken breeds at least 16 weeks to reach market weight.
