We butchered a roo today. Yes in the snow. He beat up one to many hens and my husband was just done. Anyway his meat was very very dark all over. No white meat that I can see. Now he had almost no fat on him. he was a 6 or 7 month old bird and was a RIR. I baked the bugger and the meat tastes funky and the meat is similar to my husbands tooling leather. Horrid. Usually we let it rest in the fridge and then freeze, blah blah blah but I figured save myself the trouble and just make him for dinner. Our dinner in not tasting so great. What happened.
