I'm currently hatching lots of heritage breed chicks to start a mixed flock on my smallholding. There will obviously be lots of spare cockerels. Half of the family is vegetarian and nobody is terribly keen on the idea of killing them but it seems a shame to give them away for someone else to eat when I'm sure Bobby would really enjoy them. If I do manage to persuade the family, how much preparation would a chicken need before feeding? Would we need to pluck/skin/gut the bird or just give it to him as is? I'm thinking we'd get a kennel for him to eat it in rather than the kitchen! Bobby is fed kibble but has always self-supplemented with voles etc.
