Celeste, I tried that. It didn't work for me. I boiled that dang ol' thang forever and it still was stringy and dry. Ick. :) I tried it with old hens too -- no luck there either.

But, I'm done with raising and killing chickens. Since no one around here helps with that, I get stuck doing them all. After doing 10 of them, I'm all chicken-ed out. And to raise them for only 10 meals - nah, I couldn't be bothered. I want someone to invent a breed that doesn't have to be plucked or cleaned. Actually, if just one of those two chores could be taken away, I'd be good witht that! :)

Next time I get chickens, it's going to be only about 3 or 4. Enough eggs for us with a few to give away to our son. And I might get a goose to stay with them instead of a rooster. Does anyone know if geese and chickens are OK in the same pen, if the pen is big enough for the goose?

I don't know about the goose.
I do agree that it is way too much trouble to process a chicken. I can buy the meat ready to cook way cheaper. We just have a few chickens for eggs and to entertain me.

my uncle had chickens and geese but he didn't keep them in the same fenced area once they started to fully mature. But when they were all small they were raised in the coop together all fenced in. But eventually the hens couldn't fight the geese off or get away from them fast enough so he let them all start free grazing and rarely had a problem...
