How big is the range for the free ranged chicken?
Ruthy is a Recipe Tester for Food52
The US does not have a standard area specification of size to call poultry "free range"- it just means that the chickens have room to search for their vegetation to feed on, as opposed to being fed grain or meal. The EU has stricter policies, I know- such as determined areas and how food is labelled. But not here
My understanding is that most free range chickens are captured at bus terminals and airports.
