I think you are right...that looks like a gizzard. But I learned something. I didn't know where the chicken's kidneys were. I saw what you are talking about, ate it many times, but thought it was just a bit of clotted blood.
Hi Oglala. Those kidneys are pretty gross looking to me. lol I suppose we have ate plenty of them. Have you ever noticed two tiny little rice shaped yellow things stuck usually to the clear membrane inside a chicken? They are about the size of...almost as long as a trimmed pinky nail and about 1/4-1/3 as wide - testicles. Chicken trivia! LOL (Well they are "birds!" lol)

@Oglala Also, even though the testicles are located inside the body cavity, they are sometimes removed by cutting through the ribs in the back. Then the rooster is a CAPON! Never seen it done but it sure doesn't sound easy. I bet it's harder on the poor rooster though. lol

I finished my work outside between rains. It looks like there could be some more coming here soon. Maybe the clicker should eliminate the boredom and back up to Country Hicks original post from 2 years ago and keep on keeping on. LOL That ought to take a few days if their finger holds out. LOL

I don't think so UNA. They have identified that piece as to everything that it really is, just a dead mouse that fell into the batter. LOL

or a publicity stunt to keep from paying. I onced worked in restaurants and it is amazing how many people eat 3/4 of their meal before they find something wrong in hopes that they can get away without paying. They ought to know on the first bite. LOL

That news story is so,so sad. Poor little babies. They haven't even begun to really live. I just hope that they perished from smoke inhalation in their sleep.

Yep, the way to make capons is to make a small slit, tie a string to the thingy-ma-bob and attach to a brick on the other end of the string and drop the brick.

Una, I bet they don't even know about chicken "glasses". They are a small set of solid plastic "glasses" that fit over a chicken's beak so they cannot look straight ahead and pluck the sores on another chickens hiney. Without those glasses, a chicken with a sore hiney will get plucked to death. Those are not usually used except in mass production, not regular farm use.

Oh, I know what you mean.I have arthritis in many joints, and it is not pleasant. It gets worse if you don't keep moving around.

Oh, dear. I could have certainly done without the "dropped brick, string around thingy-ma-bob" story...

The things human beings will do for a "gourmet" meal..
I'm so close to going vegetarian that it's not funny.
