The Waldviertler Weidehendl
from the Waldviertel (Lower Austria)
Currently out of stock
Those who know our corn and game chicken will love the Waldviertel pasture chickens. These are bred especially for Fitmeat and are unique, so to speak. With a thick breast and stronger meat coating, the chickens are an absolute hit and taste simply fabulously good.
The new chicken pleasure. The pasture-raised chicken bred especially for Fitmeat can really put others in the shade in terms of taste. Not only is the meat wonderfully juicy and tender, the chicken is a real stunner - especially in terms of proportions

With a thicker breast and a much thicker layer of meat, they look and taste great. Because they have just a little bit more of the best

Herkunft und Haltung
In the beautiful Waldviertel region, young farmer Sebastian and his wife Julia breed Fitmeat Weidehendl for us. A cooperation that is worthwhile and has arisen from a collaboration between Fitmeat and farmer Sebastian. Sebastian approached us with the grandiose idea of the Waldviertel Weidehuhn.
A special cooperation
What immediately excited us about it? The combination of even better animal husbandry (in the now mobile barn - his "chicken tractor") with a special feed mixture that makes the taste of the chickens quite unique: the animals are fed with a mixture of mashed potatoes, cereals, fresh fruit and vegetables.
Together as a family farm with mother-in-law Maria, the three of them lovingly care for the chickens, which spend their entire lives on the farm. The chickens have a lifespan of 8 to 10 weeks instead of 28 to 30 days like supermarket chickens.
The coop is moved every few days so that the chickens always have fresh grass under their claws. This slow and careful rearing and the first-class feeding guarantee the best meat quality.
