|Hubbards at week 10, having a lie down to rest from all that|
eating and all that growing.
|Busy hands for about an hour per bird, but they are fairly|
easy to pluck. There is more risk of that tender skin ripping
than of leaving any feathers in.
|Oven-ready at 2.45 and 2.75 kg respectively.|
|"Gribbly bits" - not everyone's taste but we like the livers, hearts|
and gizzards off our birds too.
|The finest roast chicken you can come by.|
|New potatoes from the poly tunnel. "British Queen", I think.|
|That front garden gravel strip gets its first (Rhapsody in Blue)|
rose and then, with the encroaching grass of the drive (right)
close-shaved, it looks even neater.
|Shepherding the "flock" home to the East Field of an evening. |
It's more like them scampering and me trying to keep up!
|Tom is on the right in this pic by younger brother, Mark, which |
was actually taken in 2013. I have no more recent picture.
