Are chickens different nowadays?

Sharuf | Jan 17, 2010 07:41 AM

I've been roasting whole chickens for, uh, several decades now. Used to be I could count on getting a nice crackly irresistible skin.

I haven't been getting a very good skin on my birds for several years now. I'm talking supermarket chix, (usually Foster's Farms).

Has there been a change in the way they are processed, giving the skin different qualities?
