Meat knowledge

Chicken drumsticks are the hit of the kitchen. And why is that? Because they are very easy to prepare and can be used to make a delicious meal for many people. Very simple, but extremely tasty!

Juicy chicken drumsticks made from corn chicken

The chicken drumsticks consist of the drumstick and the thigh, without the bones. The upper and lower leg, so to speak. The meat is incredibly juicy, tender and has a fantastic, but not too intense, flavour of its own.

Our Austrian corn chicken drumsticks also have a characteristic colour. This is because the carotene 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 when roasting and is therefore ideal for cooking.

. The upper leg of the Maishendl has a slightly stronger flavour and is slightly darker than the meat from the breast. The slightly higher fat content of the meat also enhances its own flavour.

Our Maishendl from Lower Austria

What makes Maishendl different from other chickens? The answer is in the name. Maishendl chickens are fed mainly on maize, which gives them their characteristic colour. Thanks to the combination of the best feed and the freedom to roam, our Maishendl are incredibly juicy, crunchy and full of flavour.

The higher fat content makes them perfect for the barbecue! The combination of optimal animal husbandry and the special feed mix ensures perfect quality and makes the taste unique! The animals are fed with 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.

We recommend one to two chicken knuckles per person.

We also pay attention to the highest quality and genuine flavour when it comes to our poultry! We therefore source 100% of our poultry from small farmers in Upper Austria, who raise their animals with care and great passion. With purely natural feed for free range, unlimited free range.

These are the cornerstones of genuine flavour and a guarantee of the best meat quality. This is exactly what Fitmeat stands for and what sets our poultry meat apart from others.

This careful rearing, the high standards in feeding and our strict controls are also noticeable in the flavour and meat structure: The chicken meat has a much finer fibre, does not lose any water when roasted, has a soft bite and is distinctly aromatic.
