      would you say their standards help produce a higher quality bird?

        Antibiotics for therapeutic use under bet care :/
        Inside constant dim lighting allowed & approx. 14 birds per square meter inside.
        Access to outside but you don't know if they actually do.

          Oh my goodness - eat the chicken. I bet most MDA readers would give an arm or a leg to have a meat supply that good.

            I shop at Coles and get the Cleaver's brand grass fed beef and Lilydale brand chicken.

            I personally emailed the companies and they have high standards from what they are explaining. The grass fed range is growing as well.

              I'm in Brisbane and have been looking at a few companies that deliver grasped and organic products.

                If you have to rely on industrial animals then only go for the protein and add healthy fats.

                  If you're trying to lose fat, chicken without the skin is superior to chicken with the skin. The simplified explanation is you can't burn stored body fat until you're done burning through the dietary fat you've eaten, so skinless chicken breast is superior to skin-on chicken thigh for fat loss if you're eating the same quantity. But it isn't necessarily unhealthy to eat the skin, so if the joy of eating chicken skin outweighs the additional calories, go for it.

                    I'm in Melbourne, I live near a 24 hour Coles which is big and they have a good selection of grass fed beef so I am lucky. Not sure about Brisbane whether they have Coles?

                        I would sweat chicken too bad as long as the chicken is as natural as you can possibly get. The skin of the chicken does have some omega 6's in the skin, but supplementation of Omega 3's in the diet negates most issues. Cook the chicken thoroughly on the lowest temperature you can and you should be fine.
