Chicken Dinner

| | Comments (0)

But not your average chicken dinner.

Remember those little chickies I posted a while back?

Chickies a week old

Four out of the five of them were roosters.  The hen and one of the roosters had been sold by Kit to someone, but since one of them was a rooster, Kit took him back.  

Saturday night a week and a half ago I got to say goodbye to the one that had gone away and come back.

For the next day, all four little roosters met their end.  Kit and Ben dispatched them and processed them, with help from Serena.

Last Wednesday night Stu and I were priliveged to join them to eat two of the roosters (the other two were frozen).

You can tell the one that had gone away because he'd been fed a lot more corn at his new home and his skin was a lot yellower.

What was even more amazing is that of the entire dinner, only the carrots, prosciutto, and the cheese were from a store.  All the other vegetebles and herbs were from Kit's garden.

I had to have some of the one I'd said goodbye to.  He was quite tasty.  Him and his brothers had had a good life, a lot better than most store-bought chickens.

There was quite a feast!  Kit had plenty of leftovers for the coming days.
