    the only thing I use on a butchered roo is the breast meat & legs. So no gutting needed, but they definetly need to bleed out regardless. Also if you want more tender meat, clean it, bag it and put it in the fridge for 2 to 3 days before you freeze it. That allows rigor to let go & the meat will be much more tender when you use it. I wouldn't add salt to it until you cook it. That way your not over salting. I have also found that off brand broths are way more salty than Swansons. That's the one I prefer. I used one from the dollar store and had to toss the whole kettle of soup. Have tried a couple of store brands that weren't quite as bad as the dollar store, but I usually just buy Swansons now. Its expensive to make a kettle of soup, then toss it cause the broth is nasty.

    I thought the salt would tenderize it some. so you cut the breast meat off the bone ? everyone must have sharper knifes then i do. I like the wings.

    Sargent Murdock is nuts. yesterday I was his best friend. today I bout gave him a heart attack from opening the cage to feed him. He has knocked his water over every day. I have no clue what to do with him. wonder if he is young enough I could add him to the flock with no trouble ? I wouldnt think he is ready for the ladies yet.

    Yep I throw the bird on a table and carefully remove the breast & legs. There is definetly a different taste with certain breeds. We butchered a Rhode Island Red Roo and cooked it and there was no way I could eat it. None of us could. I like meat birds for eating chickens. Will make chicken noodle soup with the parts of the one we have to butcher.
