3. The batch of chickens we ordered last summer are maturing, and we had a couple of roosters. They crack us up in the mornings while we wait for the bus. They are trying to crow, but it kind of sounds like a dying sqwaaaaaauuuuuukkkkk instead.
4. Because we had too many roosters, we ate one last weekend. Always a nice thing to know where your food comes from. I don't do any butchering, but once it's all done, I am happy to do the cooking.
5. After we ate the rooster, I returned the bones to the crockpot with some celery, garlic, water, and seasonings. I cooked it overnight on low to make some bone broth. It was a little oilier than I expected, but Paul fixed it with a huge batch of rice and some veggies the next day, and it was delicious. I also had a couple of jars for the freezer.
