Good luck with the multi giant peking hatch there jazz. They eat twice as much as a normal duck easily. But hey, lucky 4 monthes old now, weighs 13.7 lbs. I'm pretty sure her actual body is bigger than the sebbies of a similar age.
Hello to all my BYC friends. Thanks you guys for still hanging out and being your perfectly delightful selves, even though not much is hatching for most of us now.
CONGRATS !!! Where did you buy your pekin eggs?
Can I see a pic of Lucky? I am going to pasture them on my neighbors 10 acres over the summer so I hope that helps out on the feed! I also just bought another 1000 pounds of feed @ 17 cents a pound. I am buying that much every payday so I will have plenty of feed over the winter. I have buyers for my pekins, and only keeping a handful til butcher weight for myself
This was for my "business" side of what I am doing..... To see the poultry market & demand @ Chinatown & the Fresh Markets.....in SEATTLE
Went to Chinatown yesterday, and have the hookup for all the duck eggs, ducks, geese I can supply to their underground market at top dollar to boot. Their eating duck eggs go for around $6 for 6 eggs, and Salted duck eggs are $3 each ~ CHECK this out ......
I had the MOST AMAZING FOOD EVER !!!!!!!!!!! I was so full ~ it was like having thanksgiving dinner for breakfast! Was crazy ~ it was like the food courses kept coming ~ they didn't have a menu, they just wheeled a fresh cooked food cart around from table to table letting you choose which bowls of food you wanted. It was the coolest!!!
We had Chicken feet ! ( well my hubby & my kids ate them, I was "chicken")
We bought one of these .... I HAVE TO LEARN HOW!!! It has to be the best tasting thing since BACON...... YES I said it ALMOST better than bacon!
They had a goose hanging their to.... $60 bones I will buy one next time, just so I can taste it, so I can learn how to cook it. SORRY if this offends anyone, but their is a reason the The people of the Orient keep the poultry whole when cooking. Sajorno (the guy who took us on the tour) Explained the ritual & the blessing of the animal & the reason for keeping it whole, Actually I learned ALOT about their customs, religion, and meanings behind symbols ~ Was a huge culture shock, but was one of the BEST days FUN, YUMMY, FAMILY & EDUCATIONAL
