Want to get the most succulent tender chicken you've ever eaten? Grow your own. OMG!! We did the deed on some of our meat birds early and ate them as Cornish hens and they were good. But this last weekend we had to take care of one with splayed legs that was over 4 lbs so we took the time to do in our biggest bird at the time as well that was over 5 1/2 lbs. It came out of the oven a few moments ago and the nibbles were excellent, if I do say so myself!
