    Ahhhh you guys know how I pick up roosters from different places and use them for food? I just picked up three roosters and they're... hand tame!! [​IMG]

    All the little roosters are cuddling up to me and letting me pat them and roosting on feet and being sweet!! What the..!?

    I've never picked up super tame cuddly roosters before. [​IMG]

    I'm going to have to get the husband to kill these ones!!!

    Didn't your mum ever tell you that you're not supposed to play with your food Elizabeth. LOL
    Just out of curiosity, are you able to get Cornish X in Australia? If not, what is the "meat bird" of choice over there?

    Quote:No idea what breed since I don't buy 'meat chicks' here, I get free roosters. I think they should be Cornish xs but we call them "broilers" and since I've not actually seen anyone but myself kill chickens for food, I don't know what breed they are. haha.
