Just did a batch of FRs. Now during processing them I wasnt too impressed. The leg & thighs were big but the breast a bit thin. Now these birds were quite fatty. Now Im thinking that is natural for a chicken to put some fat during cold weather. Or it could be because I fed them quite a bit of corn along with the feed I got from the feed store." trying to save a buck" shame on me. Well we ate one for dinner tonight. The breast were sufficient. The meat, white & dark tasted great. The wife & kids loved it. The downside is not as much is left over. On a CX there would have been enough left overs for a second meal. Like chicken salad or chicken noodle soup. So did they taste that much better than the CXs. Oh yeah the skin was quite a bit thicker, Almost like neoprene. It cooked up real nice. So Im still undecided on what my next batch will be. So I guess theres no real point to this post Oh yeah. while raising these, They were a little better looking chicken than the CXs . I lost one big rooster at 11 weeks. Not sure why. The kids found him dead one day while I was at work.
