We had a very unruly/mean rooster. He was so handsome, but could not be rehabilitated from attacking my daughters. We processed him on Monday night using directions I found on this board - THANK YOU! The only thing I noticed was how hard it seemed to skin him and how long the body twitched after the carotid artery was cut (I timed it - almost 4 minutes). Anyone know why it was hard to pull the skin off? We followed directions from a diagram that shows where to cut (by the feet, down the center, etc) and the direction to pull the skin, but it was still really hard. Anyone have a diagram or pictures that show how to skin a chicken? We put him in the crockpot and had him for lunch and dinner yesterday. SO YUMMY!
