I have been looking to get chicken feet for Rossi gal, but not just any chicken feet. I didnt want those from the markets.
I had wanted to get organic feet for her, but it wasnt available. Even when I purchased the whole organic chicken, the feet is not attached to the chicken, where it should be. Strange. Where have all the feet gone to?
I guess, it's quite unlikely to find any organic chicken feet here. I dun think I would be able to get any organic feet. Thus, my next option would be *HA-free chicken feet.
*HA-free: Hormones & Antibiotics-free
I have often wondered why is it that at the markets, the whole chicken always comes with the feet & head intact. However, when it comes to the organic whole chicken, the head and feet are always non-existent. Strange.
Anyway, lately, I heard from my rawbie frens that the butcher I go to, does sell chicken feet. One of them bought some chicken feet there lately. I know they do sell HA-free chicken in parts & whole, as well as, organs & gizzards, but I didnt know they also have the feet. Therefore, during the past weekend, I decided to go over and check it out.
Yes. They do sell chicken feet and they are HA-free. The feet is packed and sold in the frozen form. According to the butcher, each pack consist of feet from 10-12 chickens, which add up to 20-24 pieces.
I got a pack from them. They look pretty nice & the nails are trimmed off neatly too. My pack of chicken feet has a total of 20 pieces. (As per what the butcher told me. :P)
The chicken feet is also a good source of natural glucosamine and collagen. Something good for Rossi gal to have, especially for her joints. Hope she likes it. :>
