Wings Live Poultry: "Brown Chicken" ?

sopped_up_sauce | Oct 22, 200803:28 PM     15

Hi Chowhounds!

While perusing the Chinatown chicken scene this afternoon, I purchased a "brown chicken" from Wings with the intention of simmering it up Hainanise style. Weighing in at 4 pounds, it's about to find its way into my stockpot.

Meanwhile, I have no idea what a brown chicken is, and whether it's suitable for simmering vs. roasting vs. frying.

Can anybody tell me more about the "Brown Chicken" offering from Wings? For instance, does it correspond to any of the breeds listed at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category... ?

Or does it correspond to anything sold at "Live Poultry Fresh Killed" in Cambridge?

Thanks for the input!
