How would you want to cook a hen that is just over a year old? I read that light brahmas are dual purpose, and mine are 14 mos. old. would they be best in a stew/crockpot, or can I use them as roasting? (I actually picture them in a roasting pan with lots of stuffing) I read that they have a tendancy toward fatness, and mine proved that true. They are huge...they hog the food, and they don't share. Plus they're getting mean about it. I really don't have the funds for just those two, plus my other 2 dozen chickens. Last year i fried a hen that was over 2 years old...and was really disappointed, it was like chewing a rubber band...(what was i thinking?) I have a few to process any way...also does/did any one else have the weight problem with their light brahmas?
