    How many sq ft of meadow/lawn per chicken?

    10-20sqft per chicken for their permanent living space. That doesn't sound like much but if you have a moveable pen (you should) and park it on a different spot every day there is virtually unlimited clover/grass/whatever to eat as long as you don't have a huge flock. The average suburbanite should be able to keep 4-5 chickens without much fuss and that is with the front lawn being denied for social reasons.

    I can do up to six chickens here with no hassle legally, might be a good idea.

    I have 4 ducks. They are sitting on eggs now, hopefully I have some summer ducks here soon, and into the stew pot 16 weeks after that...

  6. The latest season of Archer is useless. Since it stopped being a spy series it's gone downhill rapidly. The Vice season kinda worked as a spinoff, but it's basically unwatchable, self-reverential crap now.

    I've always wondered how an older duck would go in the stewpot or confit of the back legs, the flavour should get better and you don't really have to worry about the meat being tough for stewing or confit.

    Yeah, older ducks aren't terrible once you boil them for a while. It takes a while to soften them up, but they aren't bad. I don't know if the flavor is better, but in a stew or something they are fine. Biggest problem with ducks is the plucking. It takes, roughly, a million years to pluck one.

    Oh really, not a big difference in taste? Well that's disappointing. The taste difference between a 2 yr steer and a 5-8yr steer is crazy.

    Archer tanked hard when VICE started. I still watched it on insomnia nights but nothing is ever going to beat the first three seasons

    Yeah, I have done that too, but not as good and harder to render the fat.

    I guess I need them side by side to do an accurate taste test. It is usually a while between duck eating. I will have to butcher one of the older ducks as well as the new ones when (if) the new ducks get big enough. I started them off with 6 eggs before I separated out the mothers, up to 12 eggs now. Hopefully end up with a good little batch of ducklings in a few weeks.
