I once was looking up what terms like "cage-free" or "free-range" or "outdoor access" meant. Apparently, not very much. e.g., it looks like if the chicken has spent even one second of its life "outdoors", it can qualify as having been raised as "free-range".


Quote :
USDA standards require that producers of "free-range" chicken "demonstrate that the poultry has been allowed access to the outside" during raising. However, free-range regulations do not enumerate a given amount of daily time during which the chickens must be "allowed access" to the outdoors, or the size of the outdoor space they may roam. This makes the term "free-range" inherently ambiguous without a more substantive description of the conditions in which chickens were raised.

Organic is not equal to wild caught or free range

(1)Buy whole then either waste lots parts with high saturated fat or eat them at your risk
(2)Animal Proten - Problematic based on China Study
(3)Poultry meat 3 times risk for certain cancer compared with meat

Pass me kale/brocolli/apple please since I want a good-looking belly and run 5K at 90 years old! -Smilie

True of the 'free-range' label, but supposedly the 'organic' label imposes different standards of outdoor access.

I guess those are inorganic chickens... i.e. not of biological origin i.e. not an animal or vegetable.

Inorganic Chicken!!! Perfect for all of your vegetarian and vegan friends!! Marketing is great

To be fair most of the leg is included, just not feet and the head really doesn't have all that much good meat on it.. the only piece I miss out on is the tongue and there really isn't much there either.

I believe you can get the neck and guts if you want... I don't think chicken necks are very good and I only ever use the guts to make soup and even then I proabaly just rather use broth...

I know you were joking but you can get whole chickens some places but I think a real whole chicken is over rated.

BTW I think these are good chickens... I think they are the air chilled process which results in less watery chicken thus even at a higher price per pound you get a similar amount of actual meat vs water/brine.

literally 50-75% more meat than what you get on a walmart or other grocery brand rotisserie, too

I work at a Kroger in Virginia Beach that literally has a Whole Foods in it's parking lot, a Trader Joe's across the street, and a Fresh Market a block away and can honestly tell you that Whole Foods is way overrated!
