Once it hit the top 3 threads in post numbers, it could have been anyone. Lots of visitors from the home page.

Decision was made and deed has been done. We processed Punkin. His aggression was too much, and I couldn't risk giving him to someone else and causing them problems. So if he was going to be eaten, it might as well be by us. We fed him long enough, he can return the favor.
It wasn't as bad as I expected either. An innocent bird would probably be a little more difficult for me, but he made the decision alot easier.

I dont know if there is really that much difference technically, but I love baking with them mostly. Brownies, cookies, cakesc etc, just seem more rich and fluffy.
Of course, they are much bigger usually, so you have to watch recipes and adjust if necessary. I'll sometimes use less oil or water than called for.

That's how my hubby feels about Gump our CLB Rooster. He has never wanted to kill a pet and eat it until Gump. He will be dinner next summer!!!wink.png

Haven't faced that yet; don't know what I'd do.

3 Little Red Hens (RSL),1 big BCM rooster , & a raft of their youngin's

Not but 3 kinds of snakes I'm afraid of; big ones, little ones, and live ones

Have Crappie rod, will travel

Call me Ken,Whites, Whitey, or Red Dog; just don't call me late for supper

Aggression does make it an easier decision.

Besides size, they're richer and creamier... much better for using in baking than chicken eggs, imo...
