We killed a cock who had gone nasty at about 10 months. Best bird I've ever eaten, and that was roasted!

Wow! what breed was the cock?

I would aim to do that if possible. Much older and they start being a bit chewier, and you are putting a lot of feed into them for not a right lot of return. That said, life does sometimes get in the ...

Would you slaughter any bird, providing there is enough meat on them, at 5-6 months or only the dual birds as we still got some Plymouth Ro ...

Were you feeding them a lot of corn? That does put fat on quickly. Otherwise I would say that 5 - 6 months is about the right time. Much earlier and there is no meat on them.

Well, they had a few h ...

Has or is anyone giving their chickens Kombucha, scobie or/and Kefir?

I brew my own Kombucha and make my Kefir & was thinking if I could give it to all my hens?

Might just be that they are from a non-broody strain.

In favour of pekins, despite their furry-footedness (*glares at Sean*), they are very self-contained little birds and if it's too wet or snowy, ...

Whatever happened to Silkies as broody of choice?

I wish I could keep them but all mine are free roaming in the boggy hills and feather footed breeds are a no no

I use pekins, mostly, though - and they are no good if your are not wanting feathered footed birds; they get ...

Depends on the strain as well. I think Bodger's strain of light sussex are good broodies - he's in North-ish Wales. I expect he'll be along shortly.

Thanks will wait for him to turn up. I got some ...
