One of my favorite parts of making a good soup or broth is picking and cleaning the meat off the bones. Every little bit is a piece of one of my birds and can't be wasted. After I simmer a bird for 24 hours I put it on a cookie sheet and pick all the meat out. The fatty meats go in one dish for the dogs, the bones get chewed up by me or the dogs (very soft after 24 hours) and the good meat goes back in the crock pot. It's sort of therapeutic for me when I just sit down and pick the bones clean. Our dogs get excited too because they know they have a treat coming.
