I added 6 roosters to the freezer a couple of days ago. 5 of them are 20 week old Marans and the 6th is a Australorp that was probably about 8 months old? Not sure since he showed up at my house one day before the meanness and the constant crowing kicked in. I put one of the Marans in the fridge to thaw and rest. I don't want to ruin perfectly good meat by cooking them in cruddy recipes. I'd really like to use an old fashion fried chicken recipe with this bird and find a chicken and dumplings one for the older bird. So, what would you do?
