Kampung(Kampong) Chicken カンポンチキン Part 2

シンガポールで売られているカンポンチキン(放し飼い・フリーレンジ)ですが、前回も説明した通り、結局放し飼いではなく、ブロイラーと同じように育てられた品種の違う鶏です。ただ、恐らく消費者のマインドは、放し飼いでイコールオーガニックに近い鶏という認識があると思います。シンガポールでは有名なスーパーSheng Siongの鶏。ちなみに左はオス、右はメスです。当然、オスとメスでは若干味に違いがありますが、日本ではこんな表記ないですよね。
Refer to my blog on kampong chicken (previous). These kampong chicken was sold at one of my favorite super market in Singapore, Sheng Siong (Tekka Centre branch). Like I said earlier, there is no real kampong or free range chicken in Singapore. They are a specific breed of chicken raised like broilers. Yet general conception of kampong chicken is of course not broiler-method chicken but close to more organic chicken, I suspect. Interesting that the chicken is labeled female and male. There is a difference in taste. In Japan or elsewhere that I lived, there's never this distinction. This is great.
これを撮影したのが、4月1日なので、鶏の鮮度はすごく良いDate of Slaughter3月31日と記載されている。いくらマレーシアでもチルドの鶏は輸入できないので、シンガポールで活〆されたのだろう。
I shot this on April 1st so the chicken is very fresh -impressive. Since chilled chicken from Malaysia or anywhere outside Singapore is banned by AVA, this I presume was slaughtered in Singapore.
At Geylang Serai market, they sell kampong chicken egg. Although I am not sure if this is a so-called free range chicken egg, it is a little bit smaller than the usual egg. Normally, people believe that brown egg is more superior than white egg but, the only difference is the breed of chicken that lays the egg. Brown does not necessarily entail organic free range eggs.
Fresh kampong chicken which I saw at Tekka market, butcher section. The chickens are slightly skinnier than broilers and have slightly yellow hue. It seems like kampong chicken is pretty much readily available everywhere.
