I guess it's why a roast chook was such a special occasion dish when I was a child - mum had chooks in the back yard when I was young, so did my grandmothers. I take rediculous pleasure in saving the best leftovers for them partly becasue it is going to be recycled into future food, rather turning green at the back of the fridge, but mostly becasue I could spend hours watching them chase eath other round the pen after the tastiest morsels. Chicken tag.
It is also pretty funny to wathc the young males size each other up and cockfight. Becasue they are all brothers, they don't actually kill each other, but if they were in a pen with other unrecognisable cockerels they would.
One is already named Picasso, becasue that is what he will become - chicken picasso, however I am looking for fabulous chook recipies for which to name the others.
