Why is Country Chicken (Nattu Kozhi) tastier than Broiler Chicken?
Country chicken or nattu kozhi refers to the breeds of chickens native to India that are raised for eggs and meat. Different parts of the country have different breed types such as Aseel, Kadaknath or Bursa.
These are all native domesticated fowl that are bred by local farmers on a small scale basis. The life of a nattu kozhi is a charming one. Most of them spend a majority of their time in the great outdoors, running around and scratching the dirt for worms or insects then supplementing their diet with household scraps. They are butchered when they reach age of maturity, which is approximately 200 days.
So to answer the question, why the difference in taste? Anyone who has tasted both these types of chicken will attest to the superiority of the country chicken's taste.
The answer is quite clear once you look at the facts. The nattu kozhi has a very varied diet and plenty of exercise and exposure to nature. This helps in developing the complexity of the meat's flavor. One negative to this is that, if you are unlucky enough to buy a very old chicken, you could get stringy (but nevertheless delicious) meat.
Broilers everywhere have uniform bland, flavorless meat. Since their diet and production is controlled, you're sure to have tender meat from a spring chicken. But over time, due to unhealthy breeding conditions, many chickens develop weak bone structures and a high risk for avian diseases due to inbreeding.
