Pasture raised 'Label Rouge' French meat chickens. 'Label Rouge' is the European standard for gourmet meat and produce. It is a much more rigid and controlled standard than the 'organic' label used in the U.S., but with much higher standards of production such as space per animal, animal genetics, the animal's diet and of course prohibiting the use of hormones and medication.
This bird is a slower growing and more flavorful bird than we have eaten in the U.S. since the switch to the fast growing Cornish-Cross birds in the 1960's. As a small all-natural farmer, these birds were expensive and were raised for my table. That said, know that they have received only the best grass, feed, and living conditions necessary to raise the tastiest chicken available.
They will be ready June 15. I only have 15 extra to sell, so if you are interested, reserve yours now. They will be 3-5 pounds, but since this is my first time to raise these, I don't know what to expect other than what I'm told by their breeder. (These genetics are currently only available at one other farm in the U.S.)
There is an abundance of information about the 'Label Rouge' standards on the internet, so please research this to fully appreciate the quality of this bird.
Live Birds $10, processed birds will be $4 extra.
