IBCA requires two fully jointed chicken halves this includes the breast, wing with wing tip, leg and thigh. You may remove the backbone if you choose to do so. We do not care who split your halves so yes you can use pre split birds as far as we are concerned but if you are doing a comp where meat inspections are enforced check with the promoter before trying them they are the ones making the meat inspection rules not us.
