I never realised that Ros... I wouldn't imagine they would be that meaty but then I guess neither are quail or pigeons or other small birds we eat.

Great pics!

I've taken quite a liking to Silkies since we got some for my daughter. I was quite surprised at how stocky/chunky & solid they feel when I handle them - I always assumed they'd feel quite petite & slim.
