The birds produced 7 and 4.5 pounds of meat, and were thus roasted together with a topping of thyme from the garden.
Our dinner guests enjoyed the feast. I leave you with a picture of my friend's pardoned bird sitting in her stairway:
There are 6 new Astrolorp chicks (AKA Peepers) growing up in the garage.
I'm lobbying to keep them around for their egg laying and nurturing skills, but with our luck, their feistiness may be foreshadowing a flock of roosters.
It's Christmas soon, which will finally give me a chance to show you some secret knitting projects that are the works. Can't wait!
