<Hinai-Jidori (Japanese native chicken)>
Hinai-Jidori(Japanese native chicken) has been raised in the northern part of Akita prefecture, Hinai area , where the name derived from.
Hinai-Jidori moves very actively, it fly around from branch to branch, and it may fly long distance.
It is the reason why Hinai-Jidori is rated more delicious than other chickens.
Hinai-Jidori is also a pure Japanese fowl and is academically valuable, so it was designated as a natural monument of the country in 1967. (So we can not eat freely.)
In addition, Hinai-Jidori was smaller body than ordinary chicken and not suitable for edible use, so in 1954 the livestock breeding ground from Akita prefecture was replaced by female of HInai-Dori and female of American native Rhode Island Red To produce one generation of hybrids, named this "Hinai-Jidori" and are currently sold in the market. The Hinai-Jidori being produced are almost 100% female. This is because females have a longer period of good taste of meat than males, so we chose to introduce females only in the state of chicks.
In Akita-pref in 1943, the Hinai-Jidori Production Committee was established, and in rearing, in order to obtain the original meat quality of the relative inside chicken, we set standards that are consistent with feed, breeding method, and breeding period, and classified as "old-fashioned" We are working on the production of Hinai-Jidori chicken in Japan by the best method of breeding.
* It was mainly for releasing, but for the countermeasure against avian influenza, it is currently the main chicken in the poultry house (the environment where chicken can move freely like free-lying).
