Meat birds and rabbit stew

Well we picked up our last batch of purpose bred meat birds this week. We have sourced these from a hatchery, they are apparently the same 'breed' as those used by commercial chicken growers. However I find them a little un-natural, so we have sourced some game birds and are aiming to cross breed our own more free ranging 'table birds'. Other half also went 'hunting' with a friend and came home with
some rather delicious rabbits. Which he made into a tastie rabbit stew. Hopefully this may become a more regular occurence, as they are considered a 'pest' in queensland and would provide a tasty supply of lean meat.
