Juicy Chicken Drumsticks from the corn chicken
The Chicken Drumsticks consist of the lower leg and the thigh, without the bones. The upper and lower leg, so to speak. The meat is unbelievably juicy, tender and has a fantastic but not too intense flavour of its own.
Our Chicken Drumsticks from the Austrian corn chicken are also distinguished by their characteristic colouring. This is because the carotene contained in the corn makes it slightly yellowish and gives the chicken its name. Maishendl are characterised by their juicy and fine meat, which does not lose any water even when roasted and can be optimally prepared.
The upper leg of the corn chicken has a somewhat strong flavour of its own and is somewhat darker than the meat from the breast area. The slightly higher fat content of the meat additionally emphasises its own flavour.
Our Maishendl from Lower Austria
What distinguishes Maishendl from other chicken? The answer is already hidden in the name. Because the Maishendl are mainly fed with maize and thus develop their characteristic colour. Thanks to the combination of the best feed and the free range, our corn chicken are incredibly juicy, crumbly and real flavour carriers.
The higher fat content makes them perfect for the grill! The combination of optimal animal husbandry and the special feed mixture ensure perfect quality and make the taste unique! This is because the animals are fed a mixture of mashed potatoes, cereals, fresh fruit and vegetables.
The slow and sheltered rearing and the first-class feeding guarantee the best meat quality.
