No. Yours is Morrisons, this is Asda

What's the weight? Could be a mini chicken. £2 for a 1.1kg is not that cheap (£1.80 in Netto - permanent price)

Voted cold. Poor quality chicken is poor quality.

And yet nobody complains of quality when its a pot noodle deal.

poor chicken gives its life for £2, well doesnt give it, makes me sick, people wanna pay a pittance, in return for the cruelty they never have to see voted cold, at least go organic

See, this is the mentality I just don't get. Why does it matter what the chicken is sold for? It doesn't care if its sold for 2 quid or 5, it has the same life regardless of what you eventually pay for it because the same farm supplies it as did when they were 4 quid (or whatever they used to cost). The cost is completely irrelevant, yet for some reason the cheaper the deal the more people complain. The chicken probably only sold for a pound, its all the transport costs etc. that make it up to 2 quid.

Some people, for whatever reason they choose, don't want to buy organic. To them, this is a deal. Its like slagging off an MP3 player deal cos you'll only use an ipod, what is the point?

Much as i agree, im suspicious of those that are called organic too,

same as barn eggs are just chickens packed tight in a barn compared to a cage, not much difference

It's a shame we cant really know what goes on

Organic battery hens, interesting concept :thumbsup:

Seriously, pay the £2 for this and then give £4 to the animal charity of your choice. Everyone's a winner :thumbsup: Actually scrap that, give it to Barnado's - or is a chickens happiness worth more to you than that of a child????

Well good for you if you can afford to buy organic. Some of us old age pensioners can't afford that.

+1. Chicken is chicken at the end of the day and by the time you serve it up with all the trimmings it tastes the same as well. Rep to you!

i dont eat meat so wouldnt buy organic either, my point is may be just may be if people where not so greedy then these animals would cost more but get treated beter, sorry most are to thick to see my point... or just go shoot one yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't think its that people are 'to thick' (that should be too thick btw), its more that they understand your point but don't agree with it. Calling people thick also just doesn't help in an argument.

Does anyone know when this deal ends? Hope to go tomorrow and get a couple.
Thanks

I actually agree that free range chicken tastes better, the meat is firmer and some breeds definately taste better than others. If I want to buy such meat I know where I can, I don't need people who think their **** don't stink to tell me. But I didn't click on this deal looking for a free range chicken, because it was obvious from the OP that this wasn't one. What the first post told me was that this was some cheap chicken, not the best quality but a lot more meat for your quid. I thought it sounded like something I was interested in, so that is why I clicked on the thread. After checking all the details I agreed that this was cheap for the item in question, and awarded the deal some heat accordingly.

Had I decided that this was not such a deal, maybe it was cheap but very small for example, I would have not have awarded any heat. Had I thought the post was deliberately misleading, or perhaps though the poster had something to gain from advertising this here, I would have voted it cold. I would not however vote it cold because it was not an item I'd have chosen myself, I knew exactly what I was letting myself in for by clicking on this thread. I don't click threads for items I don't use, thats just a waste of my time. Personal taste is just that - personal. Who am I to judge people that make a different choice to myself?

Leaving the morality of cheap chicken aside for one moment, my only reservation is the fact that it's Asda.

I find their "own label" products significantly inferior in quality to the branded items they are pretending to be, and even below par compared to their rival's own brand groceries.

Everybody appreciates cheap chickens are injected with water to make them appear better value - it wouldn't surprise me if Asda have found something cheaper than water to inject them with!

Sorry OP - no heat from me I'm afraid.

:-(

These chickens are have such a horrible life. When you buy food this cheap please think for a second about why it is so cheap and about the welfare of the animals.

If you can't afford anything more then fair enough but you should buy the "happiest" chickens that you can afford.

You must have no tatsebuds then - these cheap ones smell like ]ammonia when you cut into them.

I buy the free range ones, not because of cruelty etc, because they TASTE so much better.

I tried the Sainsbury's own brand chicken fillets. Had to throw them away as it just didn't taste right. Took double the time to seal it, and loads of water kept coming out of it.

Plenty of skanky pigeons out walking the streets eating discarded KFC bones, if you care so little about what you digest - why pay at all?

A skanky pigeon is free and some of the ones that have ingested copious amounts of the aforementioned KFC bones are as big as chickens.........and why stop at fowl...........rats now outnumber people.............surely a Hot Deal, grab one now!

You've just got to love the chicken threads.

Yep - these folk think more of animals than children methinks. Don't even know why she clicked on the deal since she feels so strongly - she obviously doesn't want to know where to buy one - stirring things up??? :?

Further to my post number ]23 I was just doing some research as to WHY these cheap ones smell sorta like ammonia...

"As anyone knows who's changed a wet diaper or cleaned a cat litter box, ammonia is a volatile natural waste that animals produce in substantial amounts. Indeed, where animals are raised in confinement—such as large chicken houses—indoor concentrations of ammonia, if not vented properly, can damage a chicken's or even a person's eyes. ...

In the atmosphere, ammonia doesn't exist independently for very long. The compound is "relatively sticky" and readily adheres to almost any material it encounters, says Siefert.


Sounds like chicken feces produces a remarkable amount of ammonia. I'm no scientist but, if the chicken meat smells like ammonia and chicken feces smells like ammonia.... "

Is anyone aware of how long this offer's on for?

When questioning someone's intelligence on a forum, it's probably a good idea to make sure your spelling and punctuation are correct, otherwise you risk appearing a bit thick yourself.

Points to note for future reference:
1. "i" should be in uppercase;
2. "dont" requires an apostrophe as it's an abbreviation of do not;
3. "wouldnt" requires an apostrophe as it's an abbreviation of would not;
4. "may be" in the context of your post should be maybe;
5. "where" should be were;
6. "beter" is spelt better;
7. "to" should be too.

Other than that, it wasn't a bad attempt. :whistling:
Obviously I'm now praying I haven't made any spelling errors myself. ;-)

...or less.

Haha I long for the day I post a deal about a 2 pound chicken, light the blue touch paper and go to the pub. That would be the greatest day of all.

Free range chicken is tastier and a better thing to buy, but at 2 pounds this is a nice option for those having to watch the pennies. We'd all buy the organic stuff I'm sure if we could, but it's a tricky issue for some. I'll add some heat to that blue touch paper.

According to the RSPCA, 82% of these type of chickens have hock burns on their legs from prolonged contact with amonia from chicken excrement. The cheaper the chickens, the more pressure their in to make their conditions worse and worse, and the quality of meat poorer and poorer. What a sad state to get in.

It has been PROVEN that there is NO DIFFERENCE in taste between a Battery, Free Range or Organic chicken....its been scientifically proven in tests.

people that say a 'happy' chicken is a better tasting one are obsolutely deluded and trying to justify why they fork out MORE for the same product.

The test ALSO showed that BATTERY chickens are actually HEALTHIER because chickens with a 'free reign' pick up a lot more diseases than those kept in battery conditions.
