    We have an abundance of bantam roosters. We have eaten some in the past (cooked in the crockpot), but I wanted to know how others eat theirs. Looking for something tasty. Thanks!

    Chicken salad, chicken stew, chicken soup, chicken and dumplings - anything where they are cooked long enough to become tender.

    The best way to eat a bantam is to sell a few then go buy a grocery store chicken lol. But in all seriousness soup or chicken and dumplings.

    Haha! Normally, yes. Some have made me mad so it's personal now. I shall have my revenge and it will be delicious. The rest are hawk bait.

    I would think Bantam would be perfect for a light lunch or dieters.

    I'd skin 'em, and try cooking in a hot air popper.[​IMG]
