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!"

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!
