I am killing a few hens today, for a friend. Would it be worth it to process them, maybe make a stew? Or are they much too old? I do not know the breed - I THINK it might be Rhode Island Red.

Old hens make excellent chicken and dumplings. When I was a kid my mother used to can all of our old hens. She'd boil them, remove the bones, seal in a jar, pressure cook. The when she want to make chicken and dumpliings or chicken soup she would have a quart of chicken all ready to go.
