A Poussin is also called a spring chicken. It is a young, small chicken that is all white meat, even the legs and thighs. With an average weight around 1 lb., these birds are great for the grill, smoker or roasted in the oven.
Our Poussin are perfect for a mid-week dinner because they are so lean and cook very quickly. When cooking, make sure to baste often to keep the meat juicy.
Fossil Farms’ free roaming Chickens are raised in open barns with no restriction to range and are never held in cages. Our family owned and operated farm partners raise our 100% all natural Chickens in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. They do their own breeding, hatching, growing, transportation, and processing to ensure that their livestock is humanely raised and processed.
Part of the “Never Ever Program,” our Chickens are never given hormones, antibiotics, or steroids. The livestock are never fed any animal byproducts and are only given premium vegetarian feed sourced from local farms. Each Chicken is carefully processed by hand, producing a moist, tender, and flavorful product every time!
