    Sort of meat related but funny

    This isn't meat bird stuff but I figured ya'll would get a kick out of it. We have been having problems with broken/eaten eggs lately and our RIR's are always the ones with the eggy beaks. We decided that when our Buff Orps started laying in a few months we would go ahead and butcher the...

    Frozen hen

    It's 8 degrees here with a windchill of -7. I just found one of my RIR's frozen in the nest box. The dumb hen always insisted on sleeping in there instead of with the others. Poor thing. I've lost a few to the heat but this is the first to the cold. I really HATE winter.

    I was in the middle of processing a turkey yesterday when my daughters friends mother called and said my daughter had passed out and she was freaking out. I had the turkey hanging and bleeding out so I wrapped her in a plastic bag and stuck her in the frig and went to town. I was in the middle...

Now there is a young rabbit living down in the pipe and I need to find a way to get and keep it out long enough to get a new cover on the pipe.
