That, and showing them the stew pot...maybe that is a negative approach to motivating them.

I think you should hug them and give them treats.

Ah--but these are the "feral" birds. They barely will take treats from my hand. I figured tough love might work. I was hoping they'd follow Harriet and Myrtle's example--they are not only productive, they are super friendly. Alas, doesn't seem to be happening. But Harriet has adopted Agatha and Prudence. So, hopefully, they will become a bit more comfortable around me by following Harriet's example.

I am going to sound like a stupid British person, but what is 1 quart? And what is 1/2 & 1/2? Sorry for sounding ridiculous, but can't wait to try this recipe.

I think there was a link posted in the whipping cream substitute-double cream thread. If I remember correctly, 1/2 and 1/2 would be 18-30% butterfat. It doesn't whip, if that helps?!

1 qt is barely over 1 litre. Something like .94xxx L
It is also 1/4 of a gallon.

Kerry--here's a link that might help when converting Imperial measurements to metric:

Online Conversion - Convert just about anything to anything else

The cooking measurements link is the one you will want.

Doesn't sound stupid...1 quart is also 4 cups liquid volume. 1/2&1/2 is, I believe, 1/2 single cream, 1/2 milk.

Thanks for wanting to try my recipe.

Do you think this could be a good base for chicken and dumplings?
