    Hello all,

    This may be a silly question but I must ask:

    I am still ages away from eating any of my birds but once they have lost their egg producing abilities they need to go....everyone here works for their meals.

    I have read in these forums the term "stew pot" over and over again. Is this just a generic term or is this the best way you can prep a bird that is a few years old? I would much rather have fried or grilled over stewed.

    it's a generic term. a lot of people prefer older birds cooked that way, but it's not at all necessary.

    Here is a good link about cooking home grown chickens - not cornish crosses - but dual purpose and layers.

    The older the bird, the more moisture and lower heat you want to cook with. Crockpots, pressure cookers - etc.
