Is It Really Different?

ThighsForTesting

I’m participating in nutrient test of my chicken and eggs. This month I’m sending in some chicken meat, two thighs, for testing. Is there really any difference between the my chicken and commercial chicken? I’ll soon know. These are the two rooster thighs I’m sending off tomorrow. Commercial chicken thighs are never this red. Something is different.

Next month, I’ll send a dozen eggs to be tested. The program is being organized by Mother Earth News. Back in 2007, they conducted a test of eggs laid by pastured hens from a number of farms and discovered the eggs from hens raised on pasture are far more nutritious than eggs from confined hens in factory farms. It’s been eight years, and they are doing another series of tests.
