ordinary Waitrose organic chicken is better

Bought this when it was at a special lower price, and I doubt that I'll buy again. It didn't taste any better than the Waitrose chicken I usually buy and, roasted the very same way that I always roast a chicken, adjusting for the weight, it was tough as it could be. I wouldn't bother, really. Three stars is probably generous. Sorry, BF.

Great flavour but beware red bits

This chicken probably has best flavour of any. However, I roast it and we had some slices off the breast. The next day I started to carve the rest to have cold, and was horrified by the huge amount of bright red jelly, apparent blood and bits around the joints and at the bottom. I had cooked it to well over 180 degrees. We threw it out, but then I googled the problem and found that there is nothing wrong with the red bits. You get more when the chicken is young because the bones are softer, so leak marrow. Also can be to do with feed. So if you aren't squeamish you can eat it red bits and all! It had such a lovely flavour I think I will buy again, but may slow cook it instead.

This was quite small but fed a family of 4 with lots of leftovers too. Same price as a good free range on offer. If you want organic chicken this is tasty and good value

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Hard to beat!

Tastes like chicken, what do you know, but that's a quality that distinguishes it from most store-bought chicken -- and at this price? Whether or not it's on sale, it's a very good deal.

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.
