Making chicken stock from necks - 5 or 10 #s?

EngineerChic | Dec 21, 2012 06:38 PM

I joined an interesting meat CSA (interesting in that you pick what you want in your box each month) and I got two bags of chicken necks so I can make stock/broth.

Each bag is 5 pounds. I usually make stock from roasted chicken carcasses, using 1 per pot. Should I use 1 bag of necks per pot? Or split a bag between 2 pots? The pots are 6 & 8 qt stock pots, not monster ones.

I need an online calculator to convert chicken neck weight to chicken carcass weight ;)
