    I had a friend come over and dispatch the bird, but I cleaned him myself!!

    Thanks to everyone here who have posted videos and threads on how to do this properly! It worked out perfectly! I was able to clean him with out any ominous knicks to unmentionable areas [​IMG]

    Now that I have him all plucked and cleaned, he is sitting in the fridge waiting for the perfect recipe!

    How shall i prepare him? He was between 4-5 months old, so Im not sure if he will be a roaster or a fryer. Any ideas would be great!!

    If he was in my freezer I would have my mom fry him.

    lol we went with traditional chicken soup. I boiled him for about 5 hours on low until all the meat came off. He was cooked with onions, garlic and poultry seasoning, later I added a touch of flour, carrots and celery stalk leaves for flavor. The last thing I added was peaches and cream corn kernels. Peaches and cream corn is not cream corn, but kernels from the cobb that are very sweet, but when cooked in a mildly salted dish, it is reaaaaaallllllllyyyyyy tastey! And you just cant beat chicken and corn!!!
