    When I get my screwed together 110 I'll give it a test drive on this Australorp rooster. A real world test. He's 14 weeks old and 5 lbs. is
    normal for this large breed at this age. A Cornish Cross meat bird would weigh 10+ lbs. at this age. A big difference between dual purpose birds and meat birds. They are bred for feed conversion to meat. The Cornish is the chicken you buy packaged in the grocery store. DM

    Packaged Cornish are also hen's. Being a rooster is he going to be chicken and homemade noodle soup?

    Maybe. I think the meat should turn out alright marinaded over night & baked in the oven as he's not very old. Our played out hens are 3 1/2 years old and if we prepare them for the table it will take all day in the crock pot. But for dog food it won't require very long in the micro-wave. :) Or bone and dice the meat up (using the 931) for enchiladas. We store lots of roasted green chile in the freezer for this purpose.
    The Colonel being a Nebraska farm boy, like fried chicken livers and I liked the gizzards. So, when he was still with us I would save these
    parts and prepare them just like his mother did. He loved them with biscuits and gravy. Afterward my wife Always served him a slice of homemade apple pie. We have many apple farms in our county. The honey production from this is great! My 110 should be delivered by
    tomorrow and that evening would be a good time as it cools down quickly here after sunset. Thanks, DM

    I have always processed chicken in the manner my Grandmother taught me, with 9 pieces. 2- drums, 2- wings, 2- thighs, 2- breasts and 1- wishbone. The back and neck my wife uses for stock. My dogs get the mountain oysters and the liver, gizzard and heart are saved. The buzzards get the rest. DM

    sass, I'm good with calling them gonads. I typed it in that manner so folks would know I was Not speaking of the oysters on a chicken. AS this is a totally different cut of meat, which we do eat and in the manner I process these are left with the thigh. A tasty morsel of dark meat. DM

    We're at 400' 40 miles from the Mojave desert...

    I'm just having fun with you DM, not at you....:D:D

    My family has been farmers since the beginning of time, according to ancestry, the only thing left over from a chicken was the bones, except the wishbone and that was left to dry out and used for the purpose it was meant for, the rest got buried due to splintering, dogs can't eat them....
