Chinese Chicken Nomenclature

alfairfax | Nov 26, 201301:34 PM

I was on Clement Street the other day and stopped in at Cheung Hing for a duck. While I waited I looked at chickens in the refrigerator case and got curious. What is Loong Gang chicken? Googling only gave me many entries on its use as contest food on the Asian (better) version of Iron Chef. It was priced at $10.50, I assume per bird. Then there was Qing Yuan chicken at $2.19 a pound. I know Qingyuan is a place but what is the chicken? I have seen silkies there in the past which may be wu gu ji according to Google source. And there is gui fei in their cooked items which I see from long ago Chowhound discussion is poached with ginger but that is all I know of it. Any description as to taste would be appreciated.
