A couple.months ago we processed our first chicken, which a 7 month old-ish old cockerel and it tastes different that we usually eat which is store bought. It tasted a bit gamey and wasn't crazy about it. My dad who grew up eating back yard chickens loved it. It was either a red broiler or a NH production red from what folks on this site, told me. When the subject of best tasting chicken comes up, is that gamey taste, what is usually being talked about. Ps. Multitasking, hope this made sence.
