Our rare breed Cornish chickens (also known as Indian Game) sell under the Cornish Celtic® label.
These chickens are allowed 180 days of a happy, free-ranging life to reach full maturity. During this time, they are developing stronger bones, bigger muscles, thicker skin and better fat content. All of this means firmer and more structured meat with an extraordinary amount of flavour.
This is compared to just 42 days for a standard, organic free-range chicken.
In case you are not convinced, this is from the horse's mouth:
“Thanks for the amazing Cornish Cockerels last week. Feedback was hands down the best we have received on any special since opening. Comments from guests were great, we even had an online review specifically mention the dish. Everyone was synonymous in saying it was chicken like they had never tasted before. Very keen to get this on the menu going forward, exactly the kind of product we should all be championing!"(James Lyon Shaw, Owner @ The Drumming Snipe)
A Cornish Celtic® hen, on average will weigh 1.4kg and feeds 4 people.
