is there a difference in the taste of rooster and hen meat ?

if yes , what is it and which is better tasting ?

Roosters/Cocks are generally not bred for food, as they produce tough, dark, stringy meat. They can be eaten, particularly if you use a long, slow, braise...a dish like coq au vin, perhaps...but they'd still be tougher and stringier than a hen.

Stewing hens are older, and larger, than fryers or roasters, generally a laying hen of about 12-18 months. They have plenty of meat and flavor, and are good for soups, stews and stocks.

Capons are younger cocks that are castrated. They produce an abundance of light, tender meat.

Other hens are divided by age and weight as well; the smallest being a Rock Cornish Hen, which is 1-2 lbs...then going to the fryers, which are 2-4.5 lbs; followed by the roaster hens which are 5-7 lbs and have the most meat of the three. The flavor and tenderness of the meat depends on how they are raised, what diet they've been fed, and how you prepare them.

Hens are better tasting than Roosters, regardless which type of hen you choose.
