I hope this will be of help for all you chicken raisers.Once you learn this method it wont take 15 minutes. Handy if you have 50 birds to do.
Before you butcher one.
The chicks take three to four months to reach a good size, and can be butchered as late as 8 months old. After that, they tend to get tough. Many people choose Cornish Cross Hybrids for their meat birds. And its much tastier this way. :D:D:D

Ya, I always buy cornish chicks. The chicken in the video is only 6 and a half weeks old. I like to do half around 6 or 7 weeks, then the others at about 10 weeks for roasting birds
