Yes, it's making me a little scared, seriously! She usually posts regularily. Maybe it's an early April Fool joke. I hope.

Probably no one here would like "hairy beef" I guess !! I dont think it's aged that way anymore, not in the U.S.A. anyways.

Sorry to worry you all!!! When it came down to it, I just couldn't face evicerating after it sat there getting good and ... blech!
I dry plucked, dry hung in fridge at about 45 degrees. Tried one for 2 days-wasn't very good but better than fresh. Tried one at 7 days- now we're talking, was soft to work with and not gamey at all. Tried the last at 10 days- let me tell you this is the way! I've got one more poor guy who's not up to snuff I'll try at aging 2 weeks and an older one aging even longer(been trying to find him a home cause he's got everything but perfect feather color but oh well! ...).
What is the name of that turkey company? I'd love to see if maybe those innards became more "managable" with time.
In reguards to "hairy" beef, people around here still hang meat if it's the right time of year, but skinned. When I lived in Colorado (it's cooler!) we all hung our meat up to 3 weeks before touching it. That was why I wasn't afraid of trying aging chicken.
