What are Bloopers? They are whole chickens that are missing a part or two, most often it is a wing, but sometimes a leg.
From time to time, we will have a chicken with a bruised wing or leg. In order to pass USDA inspection, the affected part must be removed during processing. The chicken is otherwise fine, but we sell them at a small discount. These Bloopers may be of any size, but typically they are in the low 3-4 lbs range.
Our pasture-raised chickens spend their lives on the pasture foraging for bugs and grass. These chickens are fed a supplemental feed containing healthy seeds like millet and sorghum and free of the usual lectin heavy grains. That's right, NO Corn, NO Soy, NO Peanuts, NO Wheat, NO Barley, NO Oats, No Peas, etc. In addition, our chickens are NEVER given antibiotics or hormones. For those on the Plant Paradox or a Low-Lectin diet, you will be happy to know that the ingredients in their feed are on the 'Yes' list.
Our chickens are processed at a USDA inspected facility and individually vacuum-sealed. Whole chickens come with the neck, while the giblets are removed.
