Two fresh chickens for £3.00 at Netto

From 13th November, Netto are selling two fresh chickens for £3. These are apparently 800g each, which are a comparable size to the regular supermarket ones.

I've been served these chickens before, and I did not notice the difference to any other regular chicken. Admittedly, corn-fed chickens do taste better, but these are ideal for a Christmas meal on a small budget if you freeze them.

Anyone that thinks a chicken can be ethically live, be fed, transported and killed for £1.50 is deluding themselves - no debate this time - I just think I should be allowed to say that.

I was worried it may turn into that debate.

All I know is that they taste fine and are extremely cheap from Friday. I've got the family coming over for Christmas, so I'm buying four of these to freeze ready to defrost on Christmas Eve.

sign of the times, you cant argue that its a great deal

Good find!!! Great offer and in my opinion i think we should worry about the MILLIONS of HUMANS that dies every year due to havenothing to eat, not medicines, etc.... while some people spend three million dollars on a dress or 2 millions on a pair of shoes. The fact is that 10% of the world's population have 90% of the world's wealth. And someone is concerned about the life that the chiken lives.... God help us!!!!

Some people like to eat cheap chicken and don't care about whether its had an 'ethical' life. And some people would love to buy the best Fairtrade products for their family but can't afford to, and need to put food on their plates in any way possible. I just think I should be allowed to say that.

Great post! Agree with you. I've never been too bothered about how my chicken lived to be totally honest.

I'll pop in and see what they are like. Great price, and should be decent enough quality.

Its a deal alright, but not for me, rather pay extra for better livestock conditions (I've not voted hot or cold)

Dont you worry i can explain
Means that he is more conscious of the people that are in need, trouble, hungry, ill, forgotten and with a "live" that for most of us it is unimaginable to have than for the "life" that the chiken that he eats receive.
I am not saying that we should treat the animals with cruelty; but we are doing exactaly that to human beings. Isnt that more important? Shouldn we prioritize? :thinking:

I hope you have it more clear now and i am glad i could help to understand:roll:

I agree 100%. Voted this cold as this sort of thing needs to be stopped. Free range all the way for me, this goes for all meat I buy and eggs. It all tastes so much better too.

If you knew the real conditions that most free range poultry and eggs are produced in then I'm sure you would find it tasting pretty much the same as any other.

good deal .even if this is not to every ones liking.voted hot

15 degrees on £3 for two chickens, that is absolutely ridiculous. I feel sorry for the OP in deals like this when they find a good deal and it gets voted cold when people go on a serious moralality trip. No these chickens may not be kept in the best conditions but that takes nothing away from the fact that this is a damn good price for two whole chickens.
As someone else said shouldn't we be concerned about the 'people' who are suffering first. What really makes me laugh is that the vast majority of people who take a stand about free range animals are more than happy to buy cheap clothes from the likes of primark that more than likely make use of cheap foreign labour. But hey if you can look good for a tenner then you can afford to complain about the poor treatment of poultry.

Have my 1 degree of heat btw.

Agreed - have my 9 degree of heat. If this had been Tescos it would have been 800 degrees by now but some on here a bit snobbish about Netto, Aldi etc.

If people have the money and want to buy free range thats up to them. I appreciate their concerns but people on low budgets would be better (health wise) buying this, than some cheap ready made meals laced with additives, sugar and salt. At the end of the day people have to eat to live. If they have higher budgets then more choices (such as free range) are open to them.

Rep to the op as well

Bargain - Can actually afford to feed the kids now. Stop being "foul" with your comments its a poultry £3. When its a chicken birthday do they get a leg and a wing? Just thought I would askl

I buy free range chicken from ASDA. Buying a pack of drumsticks and thighs costs £4. and easily feeds six adults with a bit of rice and veg or chilli on the side - Had my parents and a couple of friends over last week and did this.

Tasted all the better not to support an inhumane industry.

To the comment about people suffering - yeah, why don't we all point out the mistakes that foreign governments make exposing their populations to famine and war, that'll definately make us blameless for anything we do that is wrong...

A little childish, don't you think?

WTF have these been fed to get them to be sold at £3 a pair?

I wouldn't feed food of this "quality" to a cat:p

You can read a little more here.

http://ciwf.org.uk/what_we_do/meat_chickens/default.aspx

What is frightening is the amount of chemicals that they make the birds eat to overcome diseases caused primarily by the way they are kept and the speed that they are made to put on weight to get them into the shops in the shortest possible time.

Then people actually eat the end result and worse, feed it to their children!
#25
These are probably ex caged hens to be sold that cheap but if you don't care about what you put in your body or animal welfare then they are fine. Personally the only place I would put these is straight in the bin but I have a moral conscience.

Can anyone confirm the weight please? Their brochure suggests these are actually 1kg each

Eating cheap chicken has addled your brain:p

It says £1.79/kilo.

So if two cost £3 the answer is.......:thinking:

Well.... I'll leave you to work out the actual weight of each bird.

I'll also leave you to work out how much of the weight is injected water or gawd know whatever else is added to bulk up the poor bu*ggers :whistling:

Looks like 1kg chickens to me, although I guess you'll have to wait till tomorrow to be certain. One 1kg chicken for £1.79 and if you buy 2 they reduce your bill to £3 instead of you paying £3.58.

By that logic if a 1kg bag of sugar costs 99p and its on bogof then if you buy 2 you get a full 1kg bag and an empty bag for your 99p. :whistling:

Look again. It actually says £1.79 each 1kg.

That suggests to me that they are £1.79 each or 2 for £3.00. Each bird weighing 1 kg each.

An 800g bird is rather small. Hence the question.

Not if go to an actual place that breeds them or a farmers market, they taste MASSIVELY different actually. Enjoy your chemically raised chicken :thumbsup:
