Too late?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have 26 week old roos that won't sell and they are eating so darn much so I was curious if 26 weeks is "too late" as in the meat will be very tough and inedible. They are mostly Ameraucanas, with one olive Egger. Not much meat on them but not sure what else to do with them as I don't have the money to be spending on food every week and a half.

I breed true Ameraucana's (wheatens).

The rest of the chickens are my babies, and are a random mix of breeds from past breeding projects (ranging from silkies to australorps).

I hope you had a wonderful day full of fuzzy butts!

Just slow cook them.

I've eaten 4 year old roosters. I'm a fan of the pressure cooker for older birds. If you don't have one, you'll just need a low and slow recipe. Ridgerunner has some great posts about how he cooks birds. Roasting won't be great for these guys, but simmering/braising will give a fine meal.
