I had 7 white leghorn roosters thrown in with my hens and decided to eat them when the crowing got out of hand. It's been 15 years since I've butchered anything and I can say me and my husband did a great job! I hung them upside down and slit their throats and let them bleed out. I was su prised how easily the feathers came out after dipping them in hot water. Much easier than what I remember! Not much meat on the leghorns and the dark meat was a little chewy. Other than that the breast meat was delicious and I'll be making a tasty chicken noodle soup tomorrow. I was thinking of ordering a few meat birds. Any suggestions?? Cornish X?
