Green tinge and didn't feed 5 of us

I usually swear by BF chickens so I was very disappointed to find green flesh near the bone when cooked and that it had shrunk from 1.7kg to feed only 4 people so I had to do without. Reading the web this may be because of inhumane killing of the chicken, which I'd be disappointed to believe of BF.

Lacking All Round

I read all reviews before buying and decided to try it for myself. Thankfully, I had two less people for lunch today. There wasn't much to the chicken and despite stuffing the cavity to create additional flavour, it was very disappointing. Bring back Packington Chickens in to stock please.

Rating: 5 star out of 5


I'm not the world's greatest cook but this was delicious, moist and had lots of meat on it. It didn't leach out a lot of water on cooking either. I'd buy it again.

Complete waste of money

Tough, chewy, very little meat - struggled to get enough off it to feed two....
