FREE - NEEDS COLLECTING TODAY OR TOMORROW BEFORE 2PM

Post by Mariposa on Sat May 03, 2014 4:26 pm

STUNNING YOUNG COCKEREL - NOT TOO BIG, COULD BE A BANTAM TYPE.  

MY COCKEREL IS BEING PUSHED OUT OF THINGS, BUT THEY DON'T FIGHT.

Hi Pete, yes that is when he is for the chop!  Someone from Galera is coming to take him, if I don't find a home.

I did ask a neighbour if his family wanted him for dinner, but they said Cockerels don't do well in the pot!

I had been asking around for small breed chickens and last Saturday was given some by a lovely family in Galera. Sadly my request for no cockerels was not listened to and in the box were 3 hens and the cockerel.  I did wonder why the person that delivered them dashed off so quickly!

It is such a shame, I don't want him to be killed for nothing, but think that is what will happen.  Tick, tock, tick, tock, tick .....

My old Cockerel is a lovely lad and I have to be loyal to him.  He is very unhappy and it just isn't fair on him.

Have you found him a home? On the cooking front - cockerels tend to be a bit tough and stringy so best casseroled or other longer cooking method, not too good roasted (in my experience!).

Hi Miron, no home as yet - poor lad.

I couldn't eat him, as I have named him and at this point he is a pet, but I do hope someone else might be able to!!!

Maybe I should just print that packet photo off Dave and show it to him - he might behave!

...and still ticking!!! My friend hasn't turned up yet - so still time!

Rocky my other Cockerel has left the pen and is now happily wandering around the garden - I suppose he thought "well if he isn't going, I WILL!"

I've just put two and two together ...

You didn't give your bird to a South African chappie, did you?

He was released into the big wild world just outside Orce Col.

I think I saw him the other day! If it wasn't him, then I am sure he made a nice meal for something! Ooops, probably not PC.

OMG, I have just realised that 'south African chappie' in Petes post above, is a link - you are a very bad man Pete!
