Primal Stewing Hen
These Primal Stewing Hens were born and raised on our ranch is Murrieta, CA. A stewing hen is a chicken that has completed its cycle of laying eggs, and is roughly two years of age. These hens will have a much different texture than your normal broiler based on their age of their age, because of this they are best prepared in a stew, or cooked for a long period of time. The flavor will be on par with the quality you have come to expect from Primal Pastures chickens. Only a limited amount of these stewing hens available!
This is a pastured-raised, non-vegetarian-fed, worm-eating, bug-scratching, no-soy, no-GMO, certified organic fed primal whole chicken. This bird was raised how chickens are meant to live: outside, on grass, with room to forage. This might very well be "The Best Chicken in the World", but will surely be the best chicken you have ever had.

The stewing hen is much different than a regular chicken. Its older, and if not cooked correctly, it will be tough. You can do more than make soup with it. I have a sous vide water circulator. It cooks it at a low, consistent temperature. Cooked that way, it takes about 3 days, but has an incredible rich taste, unlike a broiler chicken. You can cook it on the stove top, or in a crock pot. Since these are retired egg layers, make sure you clean the cavity. You may find a couple small yolks from unformed eggs. Throw them out.
