How 'traditional'? are you interested in the 'traditional' chinese herbal soup with black chook?

well i watched the video, very interesting. the chicken looks just like mine but we gutted it and cut its feet off :roll:

i wander if you can go to the chinese shop and get little quantities of these herbs.

so thanks jojochooks i have added it to my favourites and play it to AH when he gets home...i know now he will be totally against it and especially against giblets in the cooking sigh :roll:

i wander if i cook it when he is not around and surprise him and not show him the video :lol: somehow i think he will be very suspicious of the black colour.

If you go to a Chinese shop, should be able to get premixed herbs (enough for 1 chook), better yet, pm me your mailing address I get K the cook (OH) to put a pack together and send it your way with cooking instruction... :thumbs:

this bird went very dark over night in the freezer. i cannot take photos at the moment as computer has a problem. i do not know if they get darker than this but he had a black face.

depending how the brew tastes will depend if i think about breeding more, perhaps a bit meatier.

:lol: :lol: :lol: He looks pretty skinny in the pictures, ruff! I have a couple of silkie boys I am trying to give away. If I have to kill them I may be tempted to try the recipe too!

K the cook is going to made the 'brew' for me with my remaining cockerel tomorrow... He promise to take picture at every step (I will be at work).. It won't be the same without the 'black chook', don't know where to get 'black chook' in Brissie.. but it will give ruff idea on the 'making' part.

he is black red oeg bantam cross sebright. i think he looks pretty fair when you compare him with what the asians use. on the left is a pure large indian on the right is a bitsa bantam...pekin indian sebright if i remember. you cannot expect him to look anything like an indian and he had very little fat.

i would try the markets jojo if you are after the silkie ckl rejects. however i would always be careful of what could have been done to these birds like sprays and wormers. if it were me i would keep them a couple of weeks alive to feed them up and hopefully remove any medications in system.....and that is why i like my own chooks as i know what have done to them.

i am hoping on a brahma indian cross going into the freezer in the next 2 weeks.

I found this thread very interesting and informative. I never new that chickens could have black skin and flesh. I think I have learnt more on here than I ever did at school - and that is not just pertaining to chooks!!

Hi Ruff - If it were me - Curry, lots of it, yellow all over the top and then don't look at it - just eat it! Remembering I have a partner who needs the seeds taken out of his tomato . . . . :roll:

Oh I'd go the indian (chook 1) I can just imagine it a golden colour surrounded by baked veges. Sorry guys but I just couldn't eat the black chook.
I find the bantams such a lot of work for very little meat but sometimes you can't waste them either.
Just thinking imagine the black flesh with the purple carrots and bright green peas and yellow corn what a colourful plate it would make sitting on a bed of some wild rice. I could just maybe be converted :wink:
Enjoy Ruff. :)
