When I was a kid my dad would make whole chickens for dinner and he would always cook the heart with the chicken. I remember my brother and I "fighting" over who would get to eat it. I think we'd trade turns or split it...I can't remember. Anyway, organ meats are the best meats for you (nutritionally, that is) and I hope that my kids enjoy them as much as my brother and I did.And on another chicken note, remember how I said we were going to be getting a couple more chicks next month? Well, in trade for those 6 or 7 chicks, I'll be getting rid of 3 of our current hens. I usually take them down to the feed store where I sell them for $3 or $4 each. But I was wondering how good my hens would be to just eat? I haven't eaten laying hens before and am not sure whether it's worth the trouble of processing them or not. Have any of you eaten one of your hens before? How did it turn out?
