We killed the eleven hens yesterday and cleaned them today. The total cleaned weight was 36.6kg. average 3.33kg with a range of 2.9kg to 3.9kg.

They were quite fat and two were on the point of laying. In comparison, the cocks had almost no fat.

Sometime this week, I'll look back the invoices and see how much feed we used but I wanted to get this written down before the grubby bit of paper was lost or thrown out.

Thankyou. This is very useful.

The difference in meat texture between cockerels and hens would be my main concern. That would certainly affect the value here in France.
