I am sold necessarily with the following identification marks:
- A ring on my left leg with the name and address of my breeder,
- A seal at the base of my neck, indicating the name of the accredited slaughterhouse,
- A specific gutted or ready-to-cook Bresse chicken label.
I may stem from a male or female chick of the Bresse Gauloise breed. I am fed maize, wheat and cereals guaranteed not to contain GMOs, stemming exclusively from Bresse, and dairy products (skimmed milk, buttermilk, …). I supplement this diet with products from my hunting grounds on vast meadows (12 to 15 m² per chicken): larvae, worms, insects accompanied by grass.
I live at least 4 months. After this free-range life for the final fattening phase, I eat and rest for a dozen days in an “épinette” (a cage, usually of wood).
I am packaged gutted or ready to cook.
