    I’m going to kill my *accidental* rooster so I can sleep and don’t have my neighbors or the police coming to my doorstep. It’s gonna be a farewell to my EE but he’s around 3-4 months old. I’m just asking for recipes that’s simple and delicious. (Rather butcher it over giving it away)

    Just started crowing? You can pretty much cook him up anyway you want.
    Just make sure when you process him you let him 'rest' after in the fridge for a couple few days, let's the rigor mortis get out of them, gets the tough out.
    I marinate them, garlic and herb or and Italian dressing. Beat a egg up and add it to the marinade, that is the key to getting it to stick. And then just toss on the grill.

    I've never heard of adding egg to marinade for chicken. I'll have to try that.

    I saw a nice chicken salad recipe on Rachel Ray today... I'm sure it is posted on her site, looked quite delicious, she sliced the chicken breasts before cooking... I'll have to find it. I have been cooking mine into chicken cacciatore and eating with spaghetti...

    I'm not going to eat Johnny, the EE rooster that crows at 2am, but those Speckled Sussex fellows are history, sorry. It will be my moral liberty to have them for dinner. They are obnoxious and totally immoral and like to beat on each other and harass the female of the species.

    Butchering a roo is a last resort. I thought of buying velcro strips on making my own collar but afraid it's gonna choke him or I don't have enough patience. I live in an urban area so I know roosters aren't allowed and also isn't my fault that I lost the chance that one of the baby chicks I bought from the hatchery turned out to be a rooster. Well, goodbye to Blueberry next week or two weeks later... might going to just make fried chicken out of him, although I would like to try marinating it with eggs.

    If you lived near me, I would give you all of my extra 4 young rooster's for free. I have too many!
