The Bikers start their search on home turf, showing us how to ensure a perfect roast chicken every time. The lads discover how and when chickens first came to the UK and why they have become so popular - not just for food but also as pets. They visit a county show in north Wales to meet some prizewinning breeds and use local eggs to make Welsh cakes and Welsh rarebit. Chicken and leek suet pudding and scotch eggs are all on the Dave and Si's cook list as they crisscross the country celebrating our passion for poultry.
