土鸡 organic chicken?
"farm-raised" chicken -- as opposed to a "factory-raised" bird -- with taste and quality they can't find in the meat.
Free range is farm raised.
factory raised --- mass production about 99% of the meat chicken and 99.99% of the eggs are factory-rasied hen laid in cages scientifically.
Broiler chickens are selectively bred and genetically altered to produce bigger thighs and breasts, the parts in most demand. This breeding creates birds so heavy that their bones cannot support their weight, making it difficult for them to stand. The birds are bred to grow at an astonishing rate, reaching their market weight of 3 1/2 pounds in seven weeks. Broilers are raised in overcrowded broiler houses instead of cages to prevent the occurrence of bruised flesh which would make their meat undesirable.
