These delicious chickens are exceptional in flavour. When we say free range, it's true - these chickens are allowed to roam and forage on 160 acres of fresh County Down grass for their natural diet. Perfect for Sunday lunch.
All chickens are oven ready, with their giblets removed but included in separate wrapped package.
This chicken has not been game hung. It has been eviscerated and plucked as soon as it is killed, and is then frozen immediately. This will help to reduce the development of histamine in the meat and is helpful for people who are trying to reduce the histamine content of their diet. To minimise histamine development It should be kept frozen, thawed quickly and cooked immediately after thawing. When cooked it should be eaten immediately, or refrozen as cooked meat immediately - it should not be kept as cooked chicken in the fridge as histamine will continue to develop in cooked meat unless frozen.
Because this chicken has not been hung to tenderise the meat it will be dryer when cooked than our standard Free Range Chickens, so if you are not on a low histamine diet, you should purchase our normal hung free range chicken https://www.pheasantshillfarm.com/collections/free-range-chicken-ireland/products/free-range-chicken
