My first despatch this weekend - nervous!!

Recommended Posts

We decided to keep quails with a view to eat eggs, eat meat, maybe sell a few eggs and breed our next flock. So we always knew we would have to despatch extra males etc. this weekend is d day and I'm very nervous. Me and my husband will have to do it quickly when my little girls aren't watching!!!

Wish me luck.

Good Luck :D More importantly, well done, it's not easy but taking responsibility for your boys is a great thing to do, you spare somebody else the task, so good on you 8)

It's done!!!! I despatched two cocks this morning and got them ready for the table. It was easier than I thought, I will now leave them in the capable hands of my husband to cook tonight. No one watched I did it in the shed by myself. My six year old daughter understands what I have done and helped clean it afterwards but my three year old doesn't yet. I've kept hens for 4years but never had to kill one but feeling very proud of myself.
