    I have a roo, and I've been thinking about eating it.. Some people say I should eat him now because he is only 5 months old and his meat is very tender. Or should I wait until he gets bigger?? [​IMG]

    I'm assuming this is a roo from your layer flock and not one of the industry's Uber Meat birds. That said, he's pretty ripe for the picking any time you want.

    Much longer and he will be the most flavorful leather you have ever tried to eat. Take now or pressure cook later.
