From time to time, birds break leg on the playground outside, or will have a bruise on their skin from a neighborhood scuffle. USDA rules require us to cut this "part" out of the chicken leaving us 95% of a whole chicken! There's absolutely nothing wrong with the product itself, just a little lighter than usual. Due to the nature of this product, we can't guarantee what the missing part is going to be - or the size. - and if you'd like us to get close to a certain size, please specify at checkout! The price is a 25% discount from our normal retail prices.

This is not just chicken. It’s something unique—it has flavor. Our birds live their entire lives outside on lush pastures with all their chicken friends, eating grass and bugs as nature intended. I can't tell you how many comments we've received from customers saying "this is what grandma's chicken tasted like"
Roasting is the way to go. Set the oven to 400°F, remove the Chicken from the package and pat dry. The dryer the skin, the crispier it will become. (If you have time, let it dry for about an hour.) Once it’s dry, rub with a touch of grapeseed oil, then season with salt and pepper, inside and out. Place in a roasting pan on a rack. Cook for 45 minutes or until the internal temp is 165°F. Let it rest for 20 minutes in a warm spot, uncovered. Carve and enjoy. If you're roasting a chicken and have a small household you can end up creating many meals off of this one. After eating roasted chicken the first night, remove the rest of the meat from the carcass and make a chicken salad, or even a homemade pot pie. The leftover bones make an amazing stock. Place the leftover carcass in a pot and cover with cold water. Add vegetables and herbs, and simmer for up to 24 hours. Strain, and you have the greatest homemade stock ever.
Ummmmm, all of it, even the neck!
