What's different about Air Chilled Chicken?
The majority of processors in the U.S. rely on water-chilling, which submerges the chicken in a large vat of chlorinated ice water. While air-chilling takes longer, the biggest difference is that water-chilled birds absorb excess water, while air-chilled chickens may actually lose a small amount of their water content. This chicken is tasty, healthy, and concentrated fresh meat flavor. If you're used to traditional chicken wait until you true our fresh cuts.
Air-chilled chickens are cooled individually, while water-chilled chickens are dunked in a communal pool. With air chilling there is much less chance for bacteria to spread among chickens. In fact, a University of Nebraska study found that air-chilled chicken contains 80% less bacteria than water-chilled chicken.

Rosie chicken at this price is unbelievable! These chickens actually do live outside and go inside at night. I have seen them. The resulting dinner is healthy and wonderful!
