This is my first year raising reds. Last weekend i killed and processed two of the roos. I invited my family over on thursday for a home cooked chicken dinner. It was a disaster! The meat was so rubbery my 6yr old grand daughter chocked on it. That was absolutely terrifying. Not to mention she was the most excited about eatting the birds. She has helped with the birds since they were chicks and is one of the few family members who understand the process of raising them for food. The reds were about 18 weeks old. A big problem that i have is, I have 14 more roos. Why are they so rubbery and what can i do.
