While the action sequences may be fictional, the fact is that Canadian poultry has been free of hormones and steroids for over 50 years. Real BC Chicken Farmers are telling the delicious truth with the heart-pounding trailer Chicken Squad.

There are common misconceptions about how chickens are raised for poultry here in BC. Research shows that over 64% of British Columbians believe that hormones and steroids are added to the chicken they eat. That’s not only false, it’s illegal, and has been since the 60’s. A strict licensing and inspection program ensures that these world-class quality standards are upheld, and keeps the chicken on your plate 100% real.

In our own backyard, passionate Fraser Valley families work hard to provide some of the best poultry in the world, and Chicken Squad is allowing the public a glimpse of their dedicated agricultural life. Check out more behind the scenes footage, frequently asked questions, and get to know BC Chicken Farmers with the links below.
