My dad and husband slaughtered three of our 15-week-old roosters two days ago as I stood and cringed. But I was able to nicely pluck and clean them with my dad yesterday. What I wasn't prepared for was the smell. Wet feathers, food in the crop and waste in the bowels. We cooked the inards (excluding bowels, stomach and crop) for the dog and the smell permeated the air. So question # 1 ... will this same smell and similar taste be in the chicken when I cook it? I'm not sure I could stomach that. Especially since the same smell is in the air around the chicken run! Question #2 ... the roosters had barely been off of medicated grower crumbles when we processed them. I hadn't thought of it then, but will this affect the meat or safety of eating it? Thanks!!
