    I love Copas turkeys but as there were only two of us this year we decided to try the cockerel. I was concerned that it would just taste like chicken but actually it did really taste different. Much tastier and more gamey. It was DELICIOUS!! The texture was firmer too, like their turkeys. Definitely recommend

    This year was my first time buying cockerel for Christmas lunch. I had read the reviews and was not 100% sure. Absolutely no regrets, it was delicious. Just wish I could buy it all year round. Will definitely be buying again for next Christmas.

    Collected my 3.6kg Cockerel from the Copas farm on 23rd Dec, super efficient and COVID safe, as didn’t even need to leave the car. Lovely bird, full of flavour and very succulent, and the perfect size for our festive celebrations consisting of two people! Yes, quite expensive for what is essentially a large chicken, but better value than a small turkey in my opinion, and still had plenty of leftovers for pie on Boxing Day! Won’t hesitate to use Copas again.

    This was a truly delicious bird, the Copas cooking instructions were spot on, and it was probably the best chicken I have ever eaten. I would love to know if it is available at other times of the year or only at Christmas. It weighed 4 kg and would provide a really good meal for 8 people. Thank you Copas!
