  • No Hexane
    Most poultry producers use hexane-processed soybeans as a cheap source of chicken feed. But hexane pollutes the air and environment. We keep chemicals out of our feed.
  • No DDGS
    DDGS is a protein alternative producers can get at a lower cost than corn. Antibiotics are used to control bacteria in the fermentation process. Some antibiotics remain in the DDGS. We use only corn and soybeans for protein. Period.
  • No Hormones
    This product is free from artificial growth hormones.
  • No Junk
    This product is made with no fillers, no preservatives and no artificial flavors—in other words, no junk.
  • No Antibiotics
    Bell & Evans is the first company to raise 100% of our flocks without antibiotics—from the egg throughout the chicken’s entire lifespan.
  • Free Range

Cooking Instructions

Cornish Game Hens may be prepared by following any Chicken recipe. Either roasted whole by baking in a 350°F oven for 1 – 1 ½ hours until brown or split and grilled or broiled.

We highly recommend the use of both oven thermometers and meat thermometers! Insert the meat thermometer into the hen, NOT TOUCHING BONE. A reading of 175°F indicates the hen is done.

    These are the best hens on the market. They are smaller and not hormone fattened, which makes them more tender and tastier. I purchase mine from Whole Foods and they only have them at Christmas. I’ve printed out the info from the web cite to give to my butcher to see if he will order them for me. He carries other hens year round.

    These hens came out truly delicious and moist. I roasted two of them for about an hour and a half and tested with a meat thermometer.

    THE ABSOLUTE BEST CORNISH GAME HENS!!! I can still find them here in Kansas City at Whole Amazon. I hope THAT doesn’t change—since it’s not Whole Foods any longer.
