I have processed a heap b4 with my cousin. Not squemish as I grew up on a farm and had to butcher chickens, pigs,lambs and goats when I was in primary school. I dont enjoy it but if I am going to eat something I feel I have to be prepared to kill it.

Dianne I will keep about 30 for eggs to eat and incubate to supply my own meat. Need a few to start with as I can not sex them till 6ish weeks and I want about 25 females and 5or6 males.

Let me know if you need a lesson Doug.  Normally, you'd wait for 6-8 weeks.

Don't ask questions you don't want the answer to, Dianne.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

The Vetiver Community Project is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
