Nope. I've had opportunity but lacked the desire. Who knows? They could be something I would really like, but I've never had the nerve yet to try them.
My dogs love it raw...it's a soft meat they don't have to bury to let it get gamey enough to chew easily. They wolf it down in seconds.
Composting is good. I don't pluck any longer unless I want to save some feathers, which I just pull off dry....usually I just skin nowadays. Those skins with feathers get left for the local scavengers~ coyotes, foxes, skunks and possum. I don't have to worry about feeding them, as I have my own predators handy to keep them off my flock.
I was just noticing this the other day....how incredibly trash filled the ditches in my area are nowadays. As lawlessness abounds in this time in the world, the evidence is all along the roads. I visit my previous address a couple of times a month and the roadways are pristine there, the homes are all well kept, farms neat and clean, etc.....then I come home and the closer I get to my home county, the dirtier the landscape and homes get. Makes it hard to come home sometimes.
It's an unspeakable sadness to see such beauty marred by corrupt people.
My husband and I were discussing this the other day. A lot had been cleared between our town and a neighboring town for some sort of project or construction and as soon as they got it cleaned up and level, someone dumped a big, old dirty couch off there.
REALLY???? I don't get it?! Haul your junk to the dump...or hire someone to pick it up, donate it - whatever. But why would you want to junk up the landscape? Destroy the beauty...there's beautiful green pastures...cattle....annnnnd an old, dirty couch. Great. 😑
