The Sassos are ready. We are having two for lunch on Sat. Am feeling a little bit sad but also looking forward to see if all the egg turning, chick rearing, rat trapping, shed clearing has paid off. Will let you know.

Mmm. Bread sauce & roast potatoes.

Veg from the garden too?

How old are they?

Yes to veg from garden, broad beans, spinach and courgettes in abundance here.

Will do them this eve (DH will I still can't bring myself to do the deed, happy to pluck and draw though) and leave them to hang until Sat (not Sun)

They are 12 weeks, which according to the website where I got the eggs from is about right. They are a little on the light side but feel heavy when I lift them, and meaty.

I've never tried doing them that early. Let us know how they are.

The first time we ate any of ours I was surprised at the leg to breast meat ratio. Much more leg meat and much less breast as they'd been yomping around for months smile.

Will you be roasting them?

They are supposedly fast growers and the breast looks quite plump. We are going to spit roast them over the bbq.

Oooh lovely. I'm looking forward to my hubbards. Only a few more weeks. Report back how they tasted. <remindsselftoeatquail>

Our mongrels mostly Sussex/Vorwerks will be at least another 3 months yet. We'll probably have a couple for Harvest Festival though.

But my veg garden is virtually empty this year on account of the cot being full (again). grin

<reminds self to order quail eggs for the incy>

They got a reprieve as DH was poorly and then we were too busy over the w/end with birthday partying. Next w/end maybe.
