It's really SCARY! The stuff people feed their kids
mine have been vegan since born & the older ones have chosen to have dairy or meat when they've gone out. As a parent you should just educated them as best as you can about caring for their bodies, we only get one;)
I am glad you've decided to keep them and let them retire. I just lost my first chicken
she was such a brat!! Most of my friends knew her well LOL she liked following them around looking for a treat. They couldn't believe how smart and funny she was & (like myself) they were amazed when they seen the silkies. I have two families that actually have chickens now, for pets but use their eggs. They believe it's an added bonus, they dont have roosters, so won't have any fertile eggs. I personally had to have my white Silkie rooster "Roo", he is such a big baby!
Someone just sent me this Chocolate vegan cake recipe.. Have not tried it yet tho lol
Not only is this recipe easy, it also happens to be vegan (no animal products used). Originally a Grange recipe from the depression era. Eggs in short supply, y'know.
Thanks to Daniel S. for the metric equivalents.
3 cups flour (680 grams)
2 cups sugar (450 grams) (read this first)
6 tablespoons cocoa (100 grams)
2 teaspoons baking soda (10 cc's = 10 ml)
1 teaspoon salt (5 cc's = 5 ml)
3/4 cup vegetable oil (200 cc's)
2 tablespoon vinegar (30 cc's)
2 teaspoon vanilla (10 cc's)
2 cup cold water (480 cc's)
Mix the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients. Stir until smooth. Bake two greased, floured pans at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Makes two layers of a two-layer 9-inch or 8-inch round cake, or one small sheet cake. When cool, frost it.
