    Take one whole free range chicken

    Sounds a bit like a Lancashire hot pot. Mmm, will put Lancashire hot pot on list of things to make when OH gets home. He'll be fed up with rice and curry by then! x

    Finding a Cockerel

    Orpingtons suffer in later life from chronic hip problems due to the show breeding of a heavy chest, so I would avoid them even though they generally have a nice nature. We have a very nice Wyandotte. I agree with Daphne, try reputable breeders as they will always have extra healthy cockerels.

    My mum does ‘lamb and onions’ with left over roast lamb. Basically fry a LOT of onions, then mix in chopped leftover roast lamb and leftover gravy, top with par boiled sliced potatoes then brush on melted butter and bake until the top is crispy. Yum.

    Finding a Cockerel

    My experience of good natured cockerals is limited to orpingtons (bantam and large), LF sussex and LF brahmas. However, really its down to individual birds, so at one level anything is a risk. Although rehoming is often luck of the draw, I would probably look at a reputable breeder first, they are often happy to give away a cockeral for nothing. Another avenue might be your local vet.

    I buy little pots of massaman paste. They are made buy the company who make all the stir fry sauces. Something dragon? If I’m making it for adults I buy a spice kit too for extra zing.

    So I was thinking, cut a steak off and pan fry, make a curry, good shout on the massaman, I've never made it before but love to eat it! Also as my OH is in Thailand I'm trying to mirror some of the food that he is eating. With what's left on the bone I'd make a stew of some sort (scouse is my local stew!)

    Slow cook with red currant jelly and garlic. Cube some for a shepherds pie with lots of carrots, onions, peas and beans to bulk it out. When you only have a little bit left you could make a lamb, potato and cashew massaman or Rogan curry.

    Recommendations for France?

    It shouldn't be too bad. Even if we go by cab in traffic it's only taken us 30 minutes before. On the way back we have nearly 2 hours, so I'm happier with that.

    Recommendations for France?

    I worry about connections like that! A quick Google says Gare de Nord to Gare de Lyon could be anything from 7 to 17 minutes (and longer obviously!). The RER may be disrupted due to maintenance.

    I wanted to do one of those despatch courses years ago, when lots of other omleteers did. I wish I had, but it's not top of my list of things to do at the moment. I ate every bit of my whole chicken and didn't feel like I was eating the same thing every day so that was good. I had cajun chicken breast, pollo leoni (which is a flattened chicken breast dipped in flour, then an egg and parmesan mix) I had a thai stir fry with 100g of trimmings, I made stock with the carcass, which I used in a Tana Ramsay sausage casserole, and I put the legs in a Jamie Oliver Pukka curry, which I had for dinner and a couple of lunches in work. oh and I cooked the wings at the same time as the Cajun Chicken and had them as a late night snack! Now, what to do with half a leg of lamb......

  17. Hi All, We sadly lost our cockerel a couple of weeks ago - I think I mentioned on my thread about our sick hen (now seems ok after her antibiotics *touch wood*). He seemed a little off colour on the Friday and was dead Saturday morning when I went to check on them which was a bit of a shock as he was only 1 year old. I have given them a couple of weeks to settle and all seem happy and healthy and would like to start thinking about replacing him. Where is a good place to look? I was very lucky with him as he was a nice gentle boy and I would like another good natured chap. Are any breeds better than others for this? There are ad's online for cockerel's but i don't want to just buy/rescue a complete unknown and I want to make sure he has been raised properly and vaccinated etc where required. Thanks for the advice.

    Mount Usu which is a very live volcano. It was absolutely freezing up there. Me and him, and me and my three boys. I was there with DD in Nov I've now been up there with all of my kids which makes me happy.

    Seasonal Thoughts

    We have a very large, old Magnolia tree in the garden which is almost out in bloom - my favourite part of Spring. Plus all the girls are now laying! Also lots of lambs around here as well. We also have geese that fly over our house morning and evening from Spring onwards and they honk all the way! I just love knowing the days are getting longer and the end of the damp dreary days is getting nearer!

    Chicken Memorials

    Agnes, 4 years old, Rhode Rock. Passed away 21st March 2019. A feisty little thing that always laid rubbish eggs and didn't bother laying eggs at all from March 2018 onwards! A real character who always ran down the garden path flapping her wings like she was on a runway about to take off. I'll miss her.
