Was going to eat my turkey because i bought it as a tom and got it in the dark. Thought the next day guy messed up and gave me a hen (she would have got ate) but now a week later the head turned blue and it goobled to my chainsaw yesterday ... so not getting ate lol. I may cook up my 10 lb white leghorn tho. He is as big as my turkey no joke his neck is just not as long.
I cook duck for Thanksgiving. It takes about 7 hours with draining every hour or so. I cook mine the way my grandma did, my mom gave me her recipe years ago and I have used it ever since. We do cook our chickens just not for Thanksgiving.
