Manor chickens from Frijsenborg

The chicken production at Frijsenborg's farms started in 1998, and every year we produce approximately 6,7 million chickens.

The chickens from Frijsenborg are 100% Danish and with full traceability to the barns.

Our Frijsenborg chickens are sold under the trademark Frijsenborg Herregårdskylling.



It's nice to be a chicken

When living on Frijsenborg, it's quite OK to be a chicken.

The chickens have outdoor spaces, seatings, and items in the stables which enrich the animals' natural instincts and patterns of behavior.

Our chickens are fed with our own feed mixture made of rams from our own forests and lucerns grains.

Animal welfare is one of our highest priorities, and work hard to constantly improve the conditions for the chickens, so you can be safe to put our products in your basket at the stores.

Now we know the CO2 footprint of our chickens

With help from an external and globally recognized climate consultancy we have measured and verified the CO2 footprint of our chickens.

For us it is important for to keep improving our production and therefore it was naturally to chose this certification.


We have chosen this particular certification because it look af the whole life cycle of the chicken in its calculation.

The label does not say anything about a climate advantage compared to other similar products.
