I stand corrected then.
personally I wouldn't pay 4.50 for something the size of a couple of chicken drumsticks but each to his own eh?

browned and used as a stock cube many would get a meaty dinner from one
the loin and rear legs make an ace kebab ,the dog can have the front and the skins make good mobile phone cosies

Damn, that means I've chucked about 100 worth of meat into the hedge for foxie! I've tried feeding them to the dog, he won't touch them. I'd eat them myself, but they're b#####s to skin!

4.50 each? Reckon I could get that from the butcher? That's more than a pair of bunnies goes for! :O

The dog wont touch them, or the other 4 cats.

But the one that likes them comes & tells me when the trap has gone off with one in it.
