The premium quality of Emperor Chicken comes from the hybrid vigor of hormone-free, natural cross-breeding among 8 original species of chickens that Mr. C. K. Cheng, former lead researcher at the Kadoorie Agricultural Research Centre of HKU developed, which produces chickens that are low in fat but rich in flavor and collagen.
Emperor Boy (Rooster) chickens are nurtured for around 90-100 days, weighted approximately 2-3 catties before they are sold in the market. The longer nurturing period allows the chicks to grow muscles naturally, hence retaining a better flavor. Our Emperor Boy chickens carry less natural testosterone which makes them excellent for consumption during maternity or for general nutritional diet. To strengthen their health and natural immunity, small chicks are fed on ginseng mix from day 8 to 30 after hatching.
Emperor Chicken are farmed and sold alive in Hong Kong daily. We adhere to stringent standards in our farms and commission regular food safety tests at certified food safety labs in Hong Kong. Each chicken has a tag attached to one of its feet for tracking and authentication.
