    I couldn't stand the crowing anymore... I just couldn't STAND IT!!!!!!!

    It's so peaceful and quiet now! ~_^

    I'm still getting over the shock that I actually did it....

    I think for any beginner... they should start out with a young, meat purpose bird. I just did in my two old annoying roosters who wouldn't leave my ducks alone and kept crowing at me everytime I walked by them!!! ACK!!!
    They had SOOOOO much yellow FAT on them!! UGH! And their meat was tough and stringy *tasted good* but tough and stringy.

    Sooooo... I cut it up into tiny tiny pieces and my kids have enjoyed them as daytime snack morsels!

    Yippieeee!!! Old, but healthy.. I knew what those fatties ate!

    Will I do it again..... hmmmmm... oh probably! Prices for chicken went up again at the grocery store.

    Got to feed the family and all! Now if those 5 month olds would just start laying eggs!!!!!!!!!!!
