These birds will render an Amazing flavor that you LOVE! It is Rustic!!!
As compared to our white meat chickens, they are a bit more like a game bird in structure. They are NOT gamy in flavor at all, but more lean by nature. Their flavor profile is more pronounced and developed, a bit richer or deeper, more developed in flavor due in part because of the breed and the nature of the breed.
The skin is thicker, so depending on how you like your skin (on not), then think forward for cooking as to how you would like to prepare it.
These birds take between 6-8 months to get to this size for harvesting, so they truly are a slow growing bird.
Manny baked it in the convection oven in our cast iron pan at 350* F for 45 minutes. We complimented it with a purple potato as an accompaniment.
He seasoned it with fresh rosemary from our house garden, fresh whole garlic cloves and coated it in melted butter before baking.
Don't throw away any of those bones, the bones make an amazing bone broth or a soup stock too, not a great deal in quantity (depending on how many you have at one time, of course), but a small crock pot worth. :)
