good price, cheper than Netto.

Let me check them out as the M&S (Oakham) and Sainsbury (Freedom) so called better welfare chickens have gradually over time gone back to exactly the same taste and softness of the bones as intensive battery ones. I bet that they have gone back to their old ways as the Jamie Oliver programme on TV is a distant memory now. Anyway this is the marketing response (though may be out of date now just like the way that the Oakham and Freedom chickens had gone):-

Answer 1 on Elmwood chickens

In September 2007 the Co-operative replaced standard fresh whole chickens with chickens reared to the higher welfare Elmwood standard. From March 2008, this higher welfare standard will be extended to all Co-operative fresh chicken.

The Co-operative also sells British Freedom Food Free Range chickens under its Truly Irresistible label and British Organic chicken.
Answer 2

A dedicated group of British and Northern Irish farmers have been selected to rear chickens to our higher welfare Elmwood standard, exclusively for the Co-operative.

The chickens are housed in naturally ventilated and sunlit barns to give a fresher, brighter more comfortable environment (In excess of Freedom Food standards). The chickens are given 30% more space than standard chickens to allow them to move around (The same amount of space as required for Freedom Food and Organic standards).

Each barn is furnished with straw bales, perches and pecking objects to keep the birds stimulated (The same as required for Freedom Food).

Our chickens grow slower through the use of a naturally balanced, high cereal vegetarian diet. Our chickens will never be given antibiotics unless they are ill and visited by a vet.

Our chickens will never be fed growth promoters or digestive enhancers designed to increase weight gain. Our chickens have six hours of darkness each day to allow them to rest. 50% more than standard chickens (The same as required for Freedom Food).

The age at which they are slaughtered ranges from 40 to 50 days, depending on the size of chicken needed.

The Freedom Food Free Range and Organic are the generic standards used by everybody.

These chickens are really tasty, I will be filling the freezer! Good spot

double discount as well for me. 20% off wish i had a freezer...
