We get fresh eggs from our friend Rick, who called today and said he had too many roosters. Would we like some? Oh, yes we would and a few hours later we had 4 slow-roasted roosters for dinner and freezer.
This is the first time I have eaten fresh chicken and believe me I wish I had had the opportunity earlier. The taste is much closer to turkey than chicken and there's nearly no fat in it. Don didn't feel like plucking chickens so he just gutted and skinned them. I'm fairly sure I've had enough protein for the day...um, week.
I'm not sure of the variety, but Don said they looked like this (I was at work, fortunately). I'll find out the variety and update later.
