Chicken problem

Good morning,all

I bought two chickens two days ago with the intention of having them yesterday. There seemed to be a bit of a smell from them when I took them from the fridge, it wasn't an 'off' smell just a smell, so I roasted them but each time I basted them there was this smell. When the cooking time was up and I removed them from the oven the smell was still there. I knew I wouldn't be happy eating them and I didn't want the guests to be ill so I ditched them.

Under the same circumstances, would you have done the same?

You did the right thing Wendy. Just imagine if you had served it to your guests you would have been so worried about any possible outcome.
What did you serve instead of the chicken and have you eaten the bacon yet?

No bacon

From asking son for bacon somewhere along the line in his mind it changed from bacon to teabags. We now have teabags but no bacon, ah well!

As for the meal, we had plenty of cold meats and salad and although a couple of the guests were willing to eat the chicken others weren't nor was I. We ate the roast potatoes and carrots along with bread and various salads.

Hope all is well with you.

Your meal sounds lovely even without the chicken.

I won't mention what I had for breakfast today then :0)

Chicken problem

When I looked at the title of your post I immediately thought you had problems with a hen! One of my hybrid hens is laying small eggs, later than the others and her crop doesn't empty as far as the others. She won't empty even when tipped upside-down.

So any advice gratefully received!

I always throw out unusual-smelling food. If we were on the poverty line that might be different.... I buy fresh economy portions to make my cat food and a box of Morrison's that I opened in date from the fridge were really niffy. Maybe the shops are not always as careful as they should be? I thought those problems had been sorted out some years ago?
