Tasty & moist

4 stars

Plenty flavour moist and 5 day use by date.Made broth with carcass so excellent value.Cooking times spot on

Still not free

3 stars

Still barn kept so not free to roam at all. Unless the bedding is cleaned daily these birds breathe in foul air and don’t have much of a life. Organic is better just twice the price.

tastes ok

3 stars

This is ok but like another reviewer i dont have much faith in the RSPCA either so hopefully these birds do have a happier life and do get to roam but very difficult to be sure of this.

Tasty and succulent. Good to see RSPCA assured

5 stars

We had roast chicken. I was very pleased with this chicken, it was tasty and succulent. I will definitely buy again. Good to see Tesco stocking chicken that is R.S.P.C.A assured

Mine had noticeably longer legs!

4 stars

Some mixed reviews, but due to the "free to roam" aspect I bought one to try. The chicken had noticeably-longer legs! It cooked fine and was unremarkable otherwise. I don't really know what free to roam involves and I have little faith in RSPCA recommendations, but I hope paying the little bit extra gives them a slightly better life.

good meat but useless elastic around the legs

4 stars

the chicken meat was good but there was not much of it - far less than my usual buy of an extra large British chicken and more expensive. However I wanted to buy a more ethical chicken but I was annoyed to see the useless piece of elastic tied around the legs. This serves no purpose, is not good for the planet and has been removed from Tesco British chickens for a number of weeks now.

Very pleased, found it to be a really tasted bird,

5 stars

Not as good as i had hoped

2 stars

This chicken did not produce any juices when i cooked it and i didn't think the flavour was as good as the large chicken i usually buy.

just like chicken should be!

5 stars

pleasantly surprised...chose this as my budget will not stretch to free range and this is a good compromise. Animal welfare is something I try to take into account when I can. Once unwrapped and cooked it reminded me of chicken from my childhood, not over plump and carved and tasted great!

Tough meat and full of water!

1 stars

This is the third Room to Roam chicken I've ordered. The first was excellent, the second was full of water but this one was almost inedible! So tough, despite being drowned in water. I will not be ordering this again.
