Our chickens are 15 weeks old now and have been free ranging in the yard for at least half that time. Eight of the 10 roos will be butchered today. How long should we hold them in the fridge before cooking? Should they be frozen first? What is the best way to cook them? Crock-pot, roasting pan, fryer? I'm expecting my daughters to refuse to eat them, like they did with our first eggs. LOL, but I'm ready for a good chicken dinner! I'm hoping FRIED!
