    Oh my goodness. So I looked at this thread because there are so many replies. I started with page one and ended up reading two hundred or so replies. Granny, you are hilarious. I really would enjoy reading the whole thing!

    No flavor hu? My hands are so weak now i wondered if it is easier to skin then pluck ? That would probably only work for the meat birds. I remember having fried chicken at my grandmas a lot of times and they werent store bought. they were the roosters and old hens. It was always tender and very good. What happened? STORY TIME !!! I was at my great aunts house when we lived in Ky. and she had a little picket fence around her garden. the adults were sitting in the kitchen when my aunt hollers ,MY best laying hen is stuck in the fence, shes gonna hang herself ! she tells her boy to go get it down he goes out there, lifts it off the fence and says, aw ma, this aint your best one . and then he put it back . I didnt understand this so later i did ask, why did he put it back ? I was told, He wanted some fried chicken child.

    When I skin, I only skin the breast and legs. Then I put the rest of the chicken in the "chicken's" private crock pot. Cook it intil done, let cool and serve it to the chickens. I don't even gut them first. They are off feed for over 24 hours, so no poop in them.

    Free protein. They eat EVERYTHING but the bones.

    It just dawned on me, You cook for chickens ?[​IMG] I wont even cook for my family much less chickens. hahaaaa I dont care if its free or not. If microwave dinners are good enough for my family then they are good enough for the chickens. I bet my chickens have high cholesterol from the left over junk we eat. Shoot, could be the words first glow in the dark eggs.
