Metro's "Traditionally Raised" Chicken

wontonfm | Mar 8, 2009 04:52 PM

I was on a hunt for not necessarily organic chicken breasts but chicken without hormones and that was potentially grown more responsibly than the typical supermarket chicken.

I was in Metro and came across what they describe as "traditionally raised" chicken. now the term "traditionally raised" is vague at best (given that the current tradition is to raise chickens in overcrowded cages) but what the packaging does say is that the chickens are fed vitamin-enriched grains, that they are not fed any animal bi-products and that they are hormone free.

Does anyone have any further insight into the "traditionally raised" chicken? Is it just anti-biotic-free regular chicken that they charge a premium for?
