Have a couple of spent hens that need to be turned into soup. We tried this last year with a few old girls, and our broth did not turn out. I'm not sure what we did wrong. Hens went into a crockpot with a few cups of water and some salt until the carcass was almost bare. Then we filtered through a small strainer and made soup. Meet we feed to the dogs. Looking for some help or a good broth/soup recipe, I'd really hate to see them go to waste again.
