Standing in front of the ColesWorth chook section looking at the whole chooks and trying to decide what to buy?
The Coles brand normal chook is @$5kg. The Coles Free Range is @$7kg. LilyDale Free Range $8-9kg. The upmarket ones range from $10-$12kg.
So I wander over to Aldi and their Free Range is $6kg.
Next to check out the butchers and dedicated chicken shops.
A "premium" chook is @$20 for a bantam size chook. I guess they're the only ones nowaday allowed to runaround free.
Is it really worth it to spend the extra for a premium chook to roast?
and what with the chook sizes getting smaller and smaller. Large is looking pretty small nowadays.
