This Friday, 2/17, you can get Organic Whole Chickens for only $1.99/lb at Whole Foods! This is a really great price on organic chicken, so you may want to get there early and stock up.
In case you’re curious what the difference is between organically raised chicken and chicken that is not organically raised, they laid out the differences over on the Whole Foods Blog:
- The birds must be raised organically no later than two days after they hatch.
- They must be fed certified organic feed for their entire lives. Organic feed cannot contain animal by-products, antibiotics or genetically engineered grains and cannot be grown using persistent pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
- It is prohibited to give drugs, antibiotics and hormones to organic birds (please note: federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in raising poultry).
- All birds must have outdoor access.
