Hello everybody,

I feel like eating some chicken sashimi, does anyone know if blue footed chickens are availble in or around the GTA?

  1. I have only had them in fwrance, i didnt know they exported those chickens?

    1. I have never seen Bresse chickens in north america before
      but for sashimi wouldn't you want something local and fresh instead of something shipped from across the ocean?

        mmm, i heard there were some breeders that managed to come up with a chicken that is similiar (salmonella free).

        new york seems to be cooking some of them, wondered why i never saw any here...

        also, isn't a lot of items shipped from japan etc for sashimi here?

          weird this story just came out TODAY

          Authentic Bresse chickens being reared in... BC =(

          Hopefully we can get some to eat here somehow.

          As for sashimi, that fish is frozen or put on ice I believe or shipped live. I suppose you could do the same with chicken but I guess I get more antsy about handling slaughtered chicken and then eating it as sashimi. I would potentially eat chicken breast shabu shabu very rare but i don't think i'd go completely raw unless i knew where the chicken specifically came from.

            hehe, yea i know what you mean... ive eating some chicken raw accidentally before and was like "wow, so juicy and delicious" then realized it wasn't fully cooked and had to spit it out.. would be great to not have to worry about that

            these redbro seem to be a different breed though, wonder if they r salmonella free?
