Hello, One of my 'hens' turned out to be a rooster and when he started to crow at dawn we had to process him. I can't keep a rooster in my neighborhood without making enemies with my neighbors. This will be our first chicken that we eat from our flock. The rooster was 13-14 wks old. Is he too tough to roast? There as maybe a teaspoon's worth of yellow fat when I cut into his belly (if that gives you any indication). I was thinking I could brine it and then roast it.
