Even my husband noticed the difference in flavor (a man not renowned for his discerning taste). With the amount of rosemary I use with roast chicken you wouldn't think anyone would notice, but we both did. I have only moved up the quality scale with chicken, and most other things, since then, never back down. I would rather eat better quality, though perhaps less often.


Can you share brands-- pm if necessary.

Several Islands of the Keys have feral chickens. Cant remember the name of them.

Like I sais my birds are not totally on their own-- fencing limits the access of many predators. And only having a few types, the fencing stops most. Having the preserve next door keeps those wild animals well fed. And my birds have several roosters that are ever vigilant--- the boys stay on alert watching. Only one eats at a time, a co-ordinated effort. At night they come to the barn for the night-- the barn they grew up in. After hatching, they are kept in a stall with lots of food and water and a fierce momma.

I love that the girls come back to that stall to lay their eggs.

Yesterday I made up a chicken egg and a turkey egg. The turkeys are penned, and their food is corn and soy based-- and the eggs look VERY pale. WOndering what I can do to change their feed for better eggs.

You're lucky - my hens aren't that bright. Too often they hide & I don't know where they are until they bring the chicks around. Got lucky with the latest broody hen - she decided to stay in the coop. So much easier! As well as a better chance of surviving.

My girls will go off and hide, then show up with chicks! My boys and I work hard to catch all the chicks and the mom--- and let her raise them in that stall. Then the babies learn that is home and come back to roost as young adults.

Sorry, I can't. This was when we still lived in the SF Bay Area, and we have been in Oregon now for 17 years. Now I get my eating chickens from a local farmer at the farmers' market.
