Just wanted to share since I recently processed 3 roosters with help from an Old Order Mennonite neighbor. It was a fabulous experience and we thawed out one of the birds which my husband smoked today! Best chicken EVER! It was a 5 mo. Ameraucana rooster. We brined it for about 2 days and stuffed it with apples, lemon, onion and spices. We are definitely excited to try meat birds next summer! These roosters were all hatches from a broody and we are 4 for 4 Roosters! Well, now we know how good they taste, we'll just let the broodies have their fun! Taste was flavorful and NOT gamey! Not sure which one we ate today, but either this one or his brother, a blue Ameraucana mix.
