Can't beat home raised CCX. There simply is no taste comparison to store bought CCX. Wait until you get some heritage breed turkeys and you wonder why you didn't raise them before.About a dozen years ago, when we lived in Livingston, in town, I kept hens in the backyard. I mentioned to a neighbor lady that I was going to butcher a couple of old hens. She wanted to participate in order to learn how. So she and her 4 kids came over.
I showed her how to end the hens life. Since I was going to skin them, I cut off the wings. I opened one out and fanned myself, acting silly. Immediately the kids clamored for a wing and they all played with chicken wings, giggling and laughing. They ran all over the yard, having a great time.
Neighbor lady got her hands dirty, she got right in there with me. I sent her home with one of the hens and she made a pot of soup. Kids took their wings, I imagine at some point their mom claimed the wings for the trash. She was amazed at the smell of the simmering chicken, and how good ithe soup tasted.
Jesus is Lord and Christ 🙏❤️🇺🇸
