    take a coffee can or some other type of can in with you and put the can over their head before doing the eggstraction. works like a charm for me or leather gloves and something with long sleeves. If they do peck me they get hauled out of the nest then shaken and tossed outside sometimes by their feet.

    nope pig fat but not bacon grease. Start with raw pig fat and render it down.

    no bacon grease is from bacon which is pork that has been cured and smoked. Lard is raw pig fat (like the white ring on the outside of a porkchop). When you butcher you can take all the fat trimmings and then cook until its all melted then strain the very hot liquid fat into hot canning jars and seal with lids and rings. The stuff that you strain out is called crackelings.

    you can also buy lard in 1 pound packages in the grocery store. Lard is from pigs tallow is from beef. Tallow is good for making bird seed suet chunks to feed wild birds or for home made candles.
