JP, uh uh, not these in the oven, these are definitely not a meat bird. Now when we get the Australorps big enough to put in the roasting bag, then you got a great sized bird, hee, hee, they are pretty big meat birds, and excellent for laying too. That is what I really would like to have lots of, not replacing any smaller brown chickens as they age, the chickenyard is changing.
We had duck for dinner, by the way, (two of them) when my Daughter and her Husband were down over this past weekend. They left today (whew!!!). I sure do wish that I could remember that little diddy my Brother wrote to me one time about the saying about children coming to visit and how nice it was to see them, particularly when they saw the tail lights of their car as they drove away home, some kind of rhyme. Yep, so nice to see them come, so nice to see them go. I get worn right out, she keeps me "on" the entire time she is here, oh my gracious, gracious, did I say that? Hee, hee. She feels the same when we go home after being at her house for a few days, I believe that and am sure that as she is saying and kissing us goodbye "goodbye Mother, it has been so wonderful you and Dad staying here" (in her mind, "now get the blazes out and go home, you have burned me right out, now I need to go and sleep for two days"). Hee, hee, eeeksss!!!! How in the blazes do I get off topic like I do? Oh brother......Have a wonderful day, Cindi
