    That’s so interesting Caroline. I have hens myself and find them a wonderful addition and fairly easy easy to care for. We had wondered about turkeys this year but time has run out so I must consider it for next year. Looking forward to hearing how the bird tastes. For my cookery demos (and something I hadn’t tried before) I have been poaching the turkey crown with a really moist result.Nessa.

    I have to say, Nessa, turkeys are SO much less intelligent than hens (Turkeys – really, really stupid or just misunderstood? article for details!) but I think the eventual proof will have to be in the tasting. We’ll know on Sunday!
