    Nice work Ray:twothumbsup:
    I'm raising some chicks at the moment and hope to do this as well to the roosters when they are big enough, I have never processed a chicken before so it will be interesting, the whole point was to be able to show the kids that food just doesn't come from the supermarket, now I just have to make sure the kids don't get attached to them or give them names lol
    Happy Birthday mate, hope you have a good one:cheers:

    I know what you mean about taste, Ray.
    The taste of the modern commercially farmed chook is certainly nothing like any chook used to be.
    I recently bought a tray of turkey legs.
    They are a low cost cut because turkeys have those horrible big cartilage tendons in their legs which have to be removed before eating. They're a bit like mini whale baleen!
    So the only real way to cook them is slow cooking so the cartilage can be slipped out easily.
    I wasn't sure what to expect the taste would be like. I really thought it would be strong being turkey legs.
    But it was quite mild, more like the chook of my childhood.
    I really do hanker after the old taste of protein.
    Far stronger, more substantial, more satisfying particularly when bbq, roasted or grilled.
    I think this is why we want to eat so much (too much) protein.

    I cooked Sarah a Roasted Rooster tonight, big Brahma boy, and she has never had home grown and processed birds before and she was absolutely blown away with the taste, did it in an Oven bag for just under an hour, stuffed with Lemon and Herbs and rubbed with Garlic oil and Oregano,,,,,,, blew her away, so so so tender, and the taste, she was in love
