The results are outstanding -- Good Shepherd chickens were found to have higher nutritional values than the commercially raised birds! Good Shepherd’s ground chicken was found to have half the fat of commercially produced birds and twice the level of protein! It was also found to have six times the trace minerals AND six times the Omega 3 fatty acids of any other chicken tested, including an unexpected finding of Vitamin C as well. Kansas State continues to do testing with the birds even as this is written, and as these findings come to light, this noted scientific discovery of quality will certainly push Good Shepherd ahead of others in the marketplace.
