I've been making some room this weekend, culled out my spare Sasso cockerel which wasn't needed.
He dressed out at 2.6kg was full of flavour after a nice slow cook.

Sold the excess IG that won't be needed next year, another 20 chicks and 24 hatching eggs, that's them finished for the year now.

That reduces the food bill a bit and puts a few quid back in the kitty.

So not a bad weekend.

I don't make a profit out of my poultry but my over the gate egg sales certainly help me to balance the books and make the feed bills less of a hit.  

I took a trio of LS to Beeston cattle market last week and got 12 pounds each for them and a trio of Anconas which only fetched a fiver each but its also six less mouths to feed too.
