Some Questions from Customers....
These are some of the comments received over the phone from our customers lately; and our answers:
Cust: I bought a ayam kampung for RM16, weighing two kilos and it is not only cheaper, but sweeter.
DQ : There are no 2 kilo ayam kampung ("malai kai"). You paid for a brown feathered chicken, most likely male; females will sell for around rm18 to rm20. For rm16, you paid for a male 2 kilo brown feathered chicken which is about 65 to 70 days old. It is not possible for this chicken to be "sweeter" than our chicken which takes 90 days to reach 2 kilo. You have a very susceptible mind and you have fallen for a sweet talking chicken seller.
Cust: I prefer to buy from a stall newly set up near our house. When we want a chicken, we just pop over and they will freshly slaughter the chicken for us. The chicken tastes better too.
DQ: Ma'am, we have lab tests to support our quality and nutritional claims for our chickens. Further, more than 80% of first tryers of our chickens consistently rate our chickens as having a superior taste. More, we process our chickens in a hygenic manner. And we raise our chickens with anti-salmonella protocol in place. Now, if you persist in buying your chicken from an unknown source (the seller is not the farmer), and have it processed in an unhygenic manner, well, what's there to say.
Cust: We bought a 2.8kg chicken for rm25 from the wet market and it tastes delicious. The seller says the chicken is raised on grains like oats, barley, etc. hence the taste.
DQ: We have been educating our customers to avoid grain-fed chickens due to the health implications of excessive omega 6. Our chickens are grassfed and have been tested to have excellent omega 6: omega 3 ratio. That 2.8kg chicken derives its taste from its age (about 5 months), not from the grains and the level of omega 6 omega 3 will be in the region of 50 to 60 to 1. DQ Herbal chickens have ratios of around 5:1 or less. Please don't talk to us again about grainfed chickens.
Of cos there are innumerable positive comments and feedback.
