Have you heard about Jidori chicken? It's like the kobe of beef, but for chicken, and the craze is sweeping LA and catching the eye of eating-local junkies.
Check out this great article about a Jidori company in LA that is truly free-range, gets its birds from slaughter to table within 24 hours, and feeds them only vegetarian diets.
They even manage to do the processing in a way that really doesn't have a gross-out factor. Did you know that the "chilling systems used by many larger purveyors tend to fill the birds with so much water that they often become poultry-scented popsicles"??? Pretty gross, right? Makes me only want to eat Jidori chickens, which don't get processed that way.
