What makes a meat bird grade A, B etc? I have heard the term but not sure what it means?
Chickens are graded with the standard USDA classifications of A, B, C. The highest grade is "A" and this is the grade you should look for in your super market. The lower the grade, the older, and less tender and usable the meat will be.
Great chart of size/age: http://www.gourmetsleuth.com/Articles/Cooking-Tips--Techniques-642/chickens.aspx#2
Fantastic article that talks about backyard - home grown chicken - NOT the Cornish crosses - and how to cook them best www.albc-usa.org/documents/cookingwheritagechicken.pdf
Thanx for the links
