Okay before passing judgment know that I grew up an animal loving city girl. Not a "PETA" type but I don't like killing things. Then I married a country boy and a hunter. So now to present... Late this summer I hatched 4 chicks in my homemade incubator. 3 of said chicks turned out to be roosters. We already had one rooster (thus being able to hatch eggs) so we didn't need any more. At first I didn't love the idea of eating them. Then they started "flying the coop" and harassing the hens and fighting with each other. So today, yes on Christmas Eve, 2 roosters went the way of the cooking pot. Hubby took one to some relatives and the other met my pressure cooker for a delicious chicken and noodle dinner. I'll update later with what I though of the taste of home grown chicken. We skinned them this time but any advice on the best/easiest way to pluck would be appreciated.
