    We got hungry. The Ham was too small for the 4 of us. So we decided to go ahead and have this chciken for a late thansgiving dinner. It is in the rotiserie as I type. When it is done I will post a pic of the final results. We are guessing 7 to 8 pounds. I can hardly wait!!!!!!!!! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Good luck! If you butchered this morning, I hope it has aged enough to be able to bite into! [​IMG]

    I have only eaten 3 others that we raised. I helped in the cleaning of the birds and it was not so bad. They taste very good and I feel pride that I was able to raise food for my family.
