Cooking a Young Rooster

Hi,

A friend is about to receive a 6 month old Rooster, technically a Cockrel. The question is how to cook this bird.

Coq au Vin seem obvious but.... Most recipes call for frying chickens, even Madeleine's and Julia's recipes. (Take that you Top Chef Judgementals!) Any recipes suggestions?

How tender is a 6 month old male chicken??? Is it a prospect for roasting?

Thank you in advance for your expertise.

Most chickens for frying or roasting are 7 to 14 weeks old when slaughtered. Your 26 week old bird is a definitely destined for either soup or stew. It should have great flavor though.
