Squab, a.k.a. a young pigeon, used to be one of the most popular protein sources in the U.S., only to be supplanted by chicken in the mid-20th century.
A true gem in the poultry family, our squab, from the white King Pigeon are raised on small family farms in North Carolina and are prized for their incredibly succulent dark meat.
To be of proper squab caliber, squab must be harvested from only young pigeons under 28 days, right before they start to fly. Anything beyond can be a little too gamy.
Their diets consists of wild free-range whole grains and are hormone & antibiotic free.
Each bird weights on average 14-15 ounces per piece.
Squab are flash frozen.
