Let the free range debate begin - good luck with this mate :thumbsup:

Willow Farm chicken is our newest range of chicken. It was launched to offer a more affordable, high-welfare option to customers. These chickens are housed in spacious barns at the RSPCA-recommended stocking density, with straw bales to perch on and large windows providing the birds with natural light that stimulates activity. They are fed a maize enriched diet and are a slower growing breed that gives an enhanced flavour. All our Willow Farm chickens are sourced from British farms and by January 2009 will fully meet the RSPCA standards.

And we called them Willow Farm to give you the image of a rustic farmyard with chickens pecking in the fields, when in fact they are in huge barns on factory farms.

LOL, just when ever Ive bought normal standard chicken (not value) they seem to always have those horrible veins, so I give up on roasts unless a supermarket has a better "breed" on offer.

Lol Thankyou. :thumbsup:

I don't really think people should be debating it, it's half price, most people eat chicken and its of a better standard than the value or normal ranges that most of the chicken produce comes from.

If you like chicken, were possibly going to buy one this weekend then I think its a great deal for you. :-D

Just remember, the countless Blu-Rays listed on this site come from much bigger warehouses than the chickens. :p *I Jest*

Thanks for the votes anyway. :)

I think you will find that chickens without veins are hard to come by, they need them to exist in the first place. Genetic manipulation might be a bit Frankenstein-ian in some ways, but this doesn't exist even in the Lab.... yet!

I can think of a lot of reasons for buying or not buying intensively reared or free range; my expertise lies mainly in red meat, but I have seen enough of poultry over the years and I can probably even tell the difference blindfold, whether or not it is dead or alive but the existence or absence of veins is a new one on me!

If you care about the welfare and quality of life of the chickens you eat, buy free range...if you don't care then buy whatever you want...simples!

...I care a little but really only buy free range cos' they taste a lot better (...don't bother contradicting me on this, I've eaten a lot of chickens in my time and free range are more yummy) :)

I agree with Krinkle regarding freerange vs battery. Those "inbetween" chickens are just a marketing scam (same with "barn" eggs).

It doesn't imply they are kept in fields, it states they are kept in barns, but to RSPCA standards, not sure where you got that from. They are good quality chickens at a great price, not a lot else to say.

Never fear, the chicken police have arrived.

Evolution of chickens we eat. {not in any particular order..}

Caged.
Free-range.
Organic
Corn Fed.

Whats next?? Hand fed chickens or Slow grown chickens {for that intense flavour..}

Good deal though.. H & R added.
#15
Chickens on the perch, taste loads better....like tomatoes on the vine, grown for flavour - wow! :)
#16
Well half price or not, the chickens are a scam, there's no such place as Willow Farm and the chickens are barely better treated than 'Value'. If you look closely you can see the acid burns on the skin.

I'd rather eat chicken less and get a nice corn-fed free range one. Far, far tastier (and an appealing shade of yellow!)

i dont care if the first bit of light the chicken see's the the light in the back of my oven (good old frankie)

good price voted hot

breast fed chicken?

Re the name Willow Farm. Isn't it because the people that work in the chicken factory play cricket with them?

Its a good deal for what it is. That's the up and the down side.

I'm going to carry on paying £8 for the proper chickens from my local farm. They live in the farmyard and scratch around for worms and bugs. They've got thick, strong bones that make great stock. There's no contest between these birds and the scrawny, indoor version. I buy one a month and that's the only meat my family consumes.

By the way, if you think I'm paying a lot you should see the chickens in France. They take the old breed thing very seriously there. You can easily pay £25 for a single bird. The flavor is amazing though.

Voted cold, would have voted freezing if possible as I've heard these chickens been force fed lemon fairy liquid and pork sausages. Disgusted.

It's just another ploy by Tesco to take the p1ss out of the thick people that shop there.

Nothing special about these chickens: They are stocked at 30kg/m2, fed the same as value chicken and slaughtered at 40-44 days. Shame on you Tesco.

value chicken is £1.99 a kilo, the offer chicken is (as you can see) is £1.74 a kilo, so cheaper than value chicken.
sorry if it is 'thick' of me to get a good priced chicken. I'll let you know how it tastes later ;)

I remember a chicken taste test on TV where the intensively reared bird tasted best and was more tender. The last corn fed chicken I bought was dissapointing. I would love to buy a French appelation controlee chicken thats been brought up in the woods by his parents pecking on only natural food. In fact I spent £1.50 tonight on a ticket that will allow me to do that but it's a 78 million to 1 chance.
Whilst in Tesco tonight I bought one of these birds for Sunday. I think the RSPCA approval swung it for me- just
