    Well, I finally did it.... was having a bad day and I figured there was no time like the present to get rid of those extra roos that torment my ladies...... so I did the deed. Brought em home and just went ahead and skinned them as it was easiest and I didn't need the skin on anyways. My toddler pulled one out of the bag when I wasn;t looking and stared at it for a moment before turning to me with a Blllllpp of his tongue and a disapproving head bobble [​IMG] Of course, this didn't stop him from eating some when I was picking the meat off the bones for dumplings [​IMG] Ha!

    I must say.... they are a bit tough, but 10 times tastier than any store chicken! [​IMG] And it smells soooo good in the kitchen! Just added onion and carrots..... [​IMG] mmmmmmmmmm
