absolutely, flavorful like boar, but less gamy. Both chickens and swine are omnivores and naturally voracious foragers, so I tend to laugh when chickens are sold as 100% organic raised on vegetarian feed, the same is true of pigs who end up on soy based feed.

The same rule applies to ocean salmon versus farmed salmon.

A friend of mine raised a few Pigs years ago and OMG the smell and they are pigs, disgusting
Chickens used to eat bugs, grasshoppers & flies. Those don’t exist any more where US chickens live.
Both chickens,swine and humans are omnivores and naturally voracious foragers...!

Life is rough. Too bad it’s not that way anymore.
About 8 years ago, Mr Kitty and I bought heritage turkey for Thanksgiving. Cost an heck of a lot.
I learned to be thankful for Butterball. LOL!
Rosie O’Donnell was in town today. Does that count as “PORK on the Hoof”?
