Soup For The Soul?!



With a mind light like feathers yet hard to penetrate like stone
no recipe book could ever prepare ole' Gurdie
for the thoughts of being de-boned!

I Love chickens. We had four and a cock, they would come and sit on your lap and we had wonderful eggs from them. We called the cock 'Taxi' so when we were calling him the neighbours would hear us calling "taxi, taxi".

Gurdie! Great name for a chicken. I enjoyed your Magpie ....

We didn't eat any of our chooks - they were all layers, and I reckon you would have had to stew them forever to get a decent meal from any of them!

Great Magpie.
