We've decided we just can't keep Johnny, our Buff Brahma (not Bantam) rooster. We're prepared to kill him as humanely as possible and add him to our supper table. I was planning on roasting him but a friend recently told me that it won't taste good because he's a rooster and the meat will be too tough. I hadn't heard that before. He's approximately 5 months old and quite a hefty guy. Can anyone shed any light on this subject? What's the proper age to slaughter a bird for meat? Will a rooster of this breed and age taste good if roasted or do I need to make soup? Thank you for your insight!
