    We just slaughtered four of our roosters (a first time for us). There's this thin yellow film on their skin. What are we supposed to do with it? Take it off? Leave it on? Any guidance on what this substance is would help us.

    It's hard to say for sure without seeing pictures, but it sounds like what i usually see. It's just an outer layer of skin that will easily come off. It's really no big deal either way.

    i'm pretty sure you are just talking about the fat that is on top of the skin, in between the feathers.

    no worries there!! enjoy those bad boys! [​IMG]
