WE DO NOT GAS OR PUMP OUR CHICKEN. You must cook your bird as soon as it is thawed, do not leave in the fridge for more than a day before cooking.
Pumping chickens with a saline solution allows conventional operations to maximize their profits + get a more consistent product. As we are a small family farm that believes in enjoying animals as they are - we never pump our birds. This means our birds are smaller than you would find at the grocery store, instead having a more incredible flavor.
We do recommend that you brine your bird. Our birds get to live their life as birds. This means that they hop, skip, jump, explore, and fly. Since they aren't confined to an indoor space the size of a sheet of paper surrounded by thousands of other birds, they actually use their muscles. Brining brings out the superior flavor and helps keep your bird as tender as possible.
Chickens are $6.50/Pound.
The range for this breed is between 3-6#. *subject to individual birds.
