The egg co-op is raising chicks to get more eggs, but half the chicks are roosters. I took this guy, he looked the largest. He wandered around the back yard all day yesterday, eating lots of grass. Plucking the feathers is quite laborious as some are stuck very well, especially on the wing. I had to dunk him in a pot of hot water to loosen the rest. Tomorrow I'll cook him according to the coq au vin recipe in mastering the art of french cooking.
