Had to butcher a young rooster (10 month) this evening because he decided to flog me...not the usual behavior from one of my Wyandotte, but not gonna happen again.  He had a single comb and was destined for the freezer anyway....just hadn't gotten to this bunch yet.

He is brineing for tomorrow's dinner....will do a slow roast in the slow cooker with bacon as the skin.

Skinned, he and the giblets weighed in at 4 pounds.

I'm not sure a dead rooster learns anything. . If you really wanted to teach him a lesson..should've ate him one leg at a time..smile.png

Well, we have been a busy bunch of people! Those outside projects leave little time for caf.gif .

I'm still suffering from too many broody hens. There are six on eggs ready to hatch this week and I'm trying to keep one hen from going broody since I leave Wednesday to visit my aging father in Florida.
The hens with chicks are doing great. I did set an incubator full of eggs that will hatch three days after I return. Hubby will keep an eye on the temperature and humidity for me.
