Growing local

Went to my local produce shop yesterday to stock up on quail food and he had 5 young roosters someone dropped off and wanted me to take them for free! Will butcher them this weekend with about 60 quail, the oriduce shop is buying 20 hens from me and that will help pay for the next batch that just went into lockdown in the incubator. #thegoodlife!

The busines 'City Chicks' will take your unwanted roosters - for a price. You drop them off and pay $20 for the privilege. Very financially viable!

Not bad! I've often thought I could take someone's unwanted roosters  - it would certainly be a financially viable option.  My little hatchlings cost me a lot in feed to get them to the grown up stage.

The whole bird? I dont eat the guts or feathers.

I do keep livers and hearts. I dry the feet for the dog. I put all my bits of guts heads andfeathers in the compost and the black soldier flies eat it.

Most people bury the remains that can't be eaten such as feathers etc.  Do you clean the feathers, Jeff?

When we were kids, the leftovers used to go under the strawberry patch,
