FAQs

Q: How are the chickens raised?

The chickens are reared in temperature controlled houses that allow them to have comfortable living conditions and do not restrict their movement. They are not confined, or over-stocked like factory farmed chickens are. Commonwealth hand selects the best growers, and ensures that humane treatment and practices are always being followed. Improperly raised birds don't taste anywhere near as good as well-raised birds.

Q: Where are the chickens raised?

Chickens are primarily raised on small family farms in Pennsylvania, and to a lesser extent in New Hampshire. Commonwealth’s decision to raise birds outside of Maine was the result of an extensive sustainability analysis conducted in collaboration with the University of Maine, considering the carbon footprint of growing here versus in a warmer climate, and the emissions associated with multiple shipments of feed versus transporting birds once, among other factors. Given that quality is a primary motivating factor for us, we think this arrangement is the right balance between what makes sense environmentally, and what produces the best quality bird.

Q: Are your chickens organic?

Chickens are fed a diet that is 100% vegetarian and are not given growth-promoting antibiotics. They are raised and processed in a humane manner and are never adulterated in any way. That said, they are not certified organic. Certifications like organic, which merely dictate a 'worst case' scenario, are prohibitively expensive for farmers and processors below a certain size.

Q: What are the chickens fed?

Chickens are fed a wholesome and nutritious recipe made of whole grain corn, soy, essential vitamins, and amino acids which support optimal development in our flock.

Q: What does “air chilled” mean?

Air chilled is a method of poultry processing that involves cooling the chickens after they have been processed using only cold air, rather than submerging them in cold water. In traditional processing methods, chickens are usually chilled in cold water, which can lead to water absorption and dilution of the chicken's natural flavor.

Cooking Tips

"My recipe is about as simple as could be - I take the Spatchcock chicken, rub it with olive oil and kosher salt, and I put it on the side of the grill where there's indirect heat at about 350 degrees. After a half hour or so I check the temperature to see if it's close - and for the last five minutes I put it on the "hot" side of the grill. I let it sit for ten minutes or so - and that's it.

More Than Just Great-Tasting Chicken

Our chicken might be the best you’ve ever tasted - but the flavor is just the beginning.

That’s because we source our chicken from Common Wealth Poultry, a small family-owned artisan processor in Gardiner, Maine. 

Common Wealth is on a mission to do much more than just sell chicken. 

As Ryan Wilson, the owner of Common Wealth, explains:

“From the farmers raising our flocks, the chickens themselves, to the truck drivers delivering them, every single employee here at Common Wealth Poultry, to you - we want to tremendously impact lives in a huge way.”

A Note From Farmer Dan

I'll be honest - I had no idea what Spatchcock chicken was until a year ago. But now I'm a huge fan of this chicken - especially for grilling. In fact, I have a sort of routine during the warmer months: I will often grill a Spatchcock (or two) on Sunday - and have it for dinner. But the leftovers provide a few lunches and dinners during the week. Very convenient - and delicious!
