If he is a real RIR I would would just let him strut. Too bad your in Georgia, I would buy him from you. WAIT! my Mom is down there outside of Atlanta visiting my nephew, maybe she could bring him back on the plane. roll

I would post this in the meat bird section.

2 mini donkeys, 2 fainting goats, 3 peacocks 3 royal palm turkeys, 3 silkies, 5 barres rocks, 2 rhodies, 1 leghord, 2 marans, 5 eastereggers, 8 cats, 2 dogs. I think that is everyone

Hi,
He will be fine to eat since he's just starting to crow.

At five months he will be fine if you cook him kinda slow and with moisture.  I'd suggest braising, baking, or roasting.  He is too old for frying as far as I am concerned. 

Since it sounds like it is your first one, you might Google Coq au Vin.  That's really for cooking older roosters, but it is probably a good one for your first one.  It is a safe way to cook him and get a great result.
