These chickens are firstly reared in a warm and cosy environment. When they about 3 weeks old and considerably stronger they are allowed to wander about outside all day, feeding on a rich pasture of grass and clover. They must be brought in at night however to protect them from foxes and other marauding carnivores.
These birds are generally many fewer in number compared to dedicated commercial chicken breeders and as such, their welfare and conditions are better. They are allowed to roam free around the farm, eating grasses and other nutrients that can be found.
After removing the legs and thighs, the two breasts are removed. The breasts consist of white meat only. Chicken breasts are full of protein while being low in carbohydrates and fat. They are extremely versatile in the kitchen and can be roasted, fried, grilled and barbequed.
