The laying hens, which lay eggs from which the chicks destined to become Vallespluga cockerels will be born, are free to roam in large spaces.
The chick that will become Cockerel
After having been fertilized and laid, the eggs are gently transported to the hatchery, immersed in the greens of the picturesque Piacenza hills, where the chicks will be born.
The breeding of the Vallespluga Cockerel
The newly hatched chicks are then transported to the Galletto farms located near the Alps: here they can roam in large spaces, with mountain air and water, feeding on corn, soy and wheat-based vegetable feed.
The Cockerel’s transformation
When the Cockerels reach the desired weight, they are taken to the Gordona plant in Valchiavenna, the only Vallespluga Cockerel processing center, to be transformed into the finished product.
The Cockerel comes to the table
Vallespluga is committed, through its fleet of refrigerated trucks, to daily distribute the finished product in bulk. This important logistical and organizational commitment is essential to ensure our customers find the Cockerel in the shops every day.”
