Product Description

Daylesford Organic Chicken
Whole Bird
Fresh Class A

Our chicken roam freely and live significantly longer lives than even free-range chickens. As they forage, they make the most of our organic pastures, being a breed that naturally enjoys exploring. All this means their meat has the time to develop its unique flavour.

At Daylesford, we believe in farming sustainably. Our animals roam freely on our farm's organic pastures, and feed on the organic crops we grow ourselves. We never use herbicides or artificial fertilisers, and we rotate our fields between crops and our animals, which allows the soil to build up nutrients naturally.

Why organic?
We believe organic is better for our health, our animals and the environment; and of course always tastes better.
Our organic chickens live in plenty of outside space. Many 'free-range' chickens rarely leave their over-crowded houses, since that's where their food is.

Good, but a bit expensive for what it is

Very good chicken, but the price perhaps is not fully justified

Rating: 2 star out of 5

Small for the price

So, I've yet to cook this chicken, but for the price I paid, I was expecting a much larger chicken. This is small and from it I have to feed 8 adults, I am hoping that given it's not been pumped full of water, that this is its saving grace. We shall see, but honestly a lot of money for the size of the chicken. I've paid a few £s less and got a much larger chicken and had to feed fewer people. We shall see.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Firm and juicy

The best organic chicken I have bought on Ocado. Lots of meat, very tasty and with the firm flesh that shows that the bird had some exercise. The only downside is that it is very expensive compared to other organic chickens but it's worth it.

No flavour

Sadly flavourless chicken.

best ever

I used to buy chicken from a local organic farm but have since moved. This is a great product full of flavour. This is definitely my new favourite chicken.
