Was it awful?
Aye. It was a bit. But I thought...if I'm going to be eating some of those turkeys then I should, at least, give a hand in the killing and getting them ready for the table.
That Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall way of thinking is definitely getting through to somebody.
Did you do any of the killing?
No. I just plucked.
How many were there?
Thirteen turkeys and four roosters.
Roosters. We should have got at least one of ours ready for the pot.
Which one? Mervyn?
No! Not Mervyn. He's too handsome. One of those two that look the same.
Which one? Orange Legs or Green Legs?
No. Not Green Legs. I like Green Legs.
Seems like we'll not be eating broth for a day or two yet.
