Fresh poussin is a treat many never enjoy. The younger the better–at least when it comes to poultry! A poussin is simply a young chicken, raised to no more than 28 days which assures its tender quality. Beautiful in presentation, one poussin is an ideal single serving. Most professional chefs consider poussin superior in taste and presentation to the commonly served game hens. These average 19 to 22 oz each and come two to an order–individually sealed. Make a special presentation at your table with tender poussin. These are FRESH poussin, raised by a small-scale, experienced farmer, being fed an all-vegetable diet and fresh spring water and absolutely no antibiotics. The result is a tender and tasty treat for a home chef.

This farmer knows birds! Raising utility pigeons dating back to World War I, they became the "experts" on pigeons, publishing three books. Through the years the fascination of pigeons expanded to other birds, including these poussins. This pigeon farm is a piece of history in a quaint Southern town. They have remained dedicated to humane growing and breeding. Their birds are raised in a stress-free, social environment and dine on an all vegetable diet with spring water. Palmetto Pigeon Farm is dedicated to raising an assortment of specialty poultry for your table.

Serve with roasted root vegetables in cooler months or a fresh chilled summer soup and couscous salad in the dog days of summer.
