Just curious -- my brother has a slew of chickens in his yard, and every time I visit I always come home with some of the spoils. I love 'em -- there's no question they taste better than store-bought -- but my wife thinks this is positively revolting. She's of the "I don't want to know where they came from" mentality. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt that she knows this is irrational -- I mean, no matter how much you put it out of your mind, you still know where they came from.
So, how 'bout you? Eat 'em fresh if you can?
