    Please share what your favorite bird to roast is, that you have raised. I'm talking a 5+lb bird that tastes delish. Thanks

    I got a dozen fertilized goose eggs from a friend, and raised them to be pond geese. But after they got to be about 8 months old, they started trying to dominate our pond. My wife said they had to go. I decided they weren't going anywhere further than our freezer.

    I processed them and then I took them to our butcher and had them smoked. They were shockingly good.

    all cooking forms lend them selves better to one bird or another, I'm currently "crowing" [​IMG] about my heritage turkey, it really was amazing, but turkey once a year is enough for me (I like to keep it special).
    so for roasting, hands down 8 or 9 week old CX.
