If the third time is the charm, I'm -- well -- not charmed.
I frequently buy the two pack of organic chickens (Coleman brand) at Costco, but I've encountered some issues that have me rethinking this particular brand and I'm wondering if it is just me. Probably over a year ago, I noticed that one of the chickens had quite a few feather nubs still on it, which I plucked out with kitchen tweezers. I didn't like this much, but rather than being an exception, it seems that everytime I buy one of these chickens, some additional plucking is required. Then, a couple of weeks ago, one of the chickens had blue (like blue ink) all over it. I'm sure this is some residue from the processing, but really -- why is there blue ink on any chicken, let alone an organic one (was the ink organic?)? Today, however, was the last straw. The chicken didn't have a few nubs, it had several (more than 20) feather shafts, some almost two inches long! This seems like just too much to me. Third strike -- they are out. But is it only me? Does anyone else buy this type of chicken and, if so, what is your experience?
