This will be my first time butchering chickens. Do I need to let the birds rest whole before I cut them up or can cut them up and place them in the refrigerator?
I'm guessing your are talking about ~8 week old cornish cross?I've never "rested" my chickens in a refrigerator (never had enough room for all the birds). It hasn't been a problem as far as I can tell.
