IT WAS GREAT! Wow... That obnoxious 2AM crowing black cochin finally got it, and he tasted soooo good. I wasn't planning on eating him, but hey, things happen. I had too many roosters that NOBODY would take. I figured that if I was going to give them away for someone else to eat, I should just eat them myself. I'm so glad that I did. I ended up browning him with a few onions and spices, then basically stewing him, adding water when necessary until he was tender, then rendering the last bit of water down into a nice gravy. YUM-O. After the first bite, I realized that it was much easier than I thought, and I'm going to need to find a hatchery still shipping so I can some meat birds!!
