2013_chickens_1234.jpgFood purveyor D'Artagnan is now raising chickens that eat bread and vegetable scraps from high-end restaurants like Per Se, The Modern, Jean Georges, and David Burke Townhouse. These "Green Circle" birds will eventually be served at the restaurants that provide the fancy chicken feed. David Burke explains: "It's kind of like a weird competition...It's like, 'My chicken eats better than yours.' At least that's how I'm looking at it. I'm going to spoil my chicken like a pet." [NYT]
