Here is a picture of my fresh from the oven barred rock rooster who was processed on Saturday. Yes ... I do recognize he doesn't have much breast meat, but that's great for me ... I don't like white meat!



Cooked in a Romertopf clay pot ... I'm going to have to get a bigger one; these guys were too big to fit!

Interesting result ... taste was really really really good. But not a lot of meat; even for a 9 month old roo. Another interesting point is that I really liked the breast meat (what little there was) better than the dark meat. I sense cornishX in our future!

DP breast meat is YUMMY, and so is that super dark meat


Even homeraised CX are better than store meat if you give them a bit to move around and get some firmness to their meat. It's not soft and spongy, and isn't drowning in "enhanced for flavor" sodium stuff.

Holy Smokes even BETTER!

Edited to clarify...
