My few remaining sassos are about to come into lay. I noticed on Friday that one was not eating with the others and she was rather hunched and quiet. Put boys to bed and then went to investigate.
Poor thing had a very bloody vent and lots of white poo and was straining. Got Dh to have a look, he actually stuck his fingers up and released two eggs and a part formed egg, sadly she had prolapsed and we decided that she would be no good as a layer and she is now a meat chicken (in the freezer) .
On a positive note she is the first hen sasso that we have prepared and she has an amazing amount of meat, even her wings were very meaty.
Fab thanks. I am looking for a decent egg layer that is also a good meal. I'm tempted to get a couple of sassos, and mix em with light sussex, rhodies and maybe even a jersey giant or two. How well do they lay?
