They say anything up to 7 days. But remember, the longer you leave it hang, the stronger the taste is. Depends on your own personal preference, but I leave mine for just a couple of days....

Yep....

3 days good for me. Hang 'em by the neck (not by the feet) otherwise the breast meat will taste yukkie

My son has decided he is Nigella Lawson,, he made the dinner last night :blink:

After leaving it hanging for 3 days he cleaned and plucked it disected it and cooked it,,,, :icon_eek: :icon_eek:

I was a bit wary to begin with but I must admit,,, it was delicious :D :D

Even the stinkies got a bit

And we're all still here today :11: :11:
