My first ever spatchcock!

The credit crunch or whatever you want to call it seems to have had a bit of an impact on the available supply of Guinea Fowl, or something.  The supermarket by work has them on special at the moment, so I thought we’d give one a go to see what they’re like.

So waddaya do with them?!  Only thing I seem to recall seeing reasonably regularly is piri-piri spatchcock Guinea Fowl, so thought I’d give that a go.

With a bit of help from some instructions for the internet, the spatchcocking actually went pretty easily.  The kitchen shears/scissors that we’ve inherited that can’t seem to cut anything else seemed pretty much at home chomping though the bones.  I was impressed! And I’d like to think I managed to do a pretty good job of it too!

Now to see what it tastes like when it finally finishes cooking…

    If I were a guinea fowl, I think I would be in severe pain right now!

    Have no idea what you are talking about, but when our chooks stop laying then perhaps you could come and show us your stuff here!
