    Just wondering how much chicken folks ate.

    My dream would be to raise our own beef and pork as well so we had plenty of variety. But for now we're just starting with chicken (and ducks and geese in the spring)

    Thanks!

    On average 4 times a week. Like you I'd like to raise my own meat. We'll also be adding quail, duck, goose and goat meat next Spring.

    Raising children is like being pecked to death by a chicken.

    LOL! It's also like trying to herd cats! ('cept hey kids talk back!)

    I raised enough chickens o have one bird a week for a year.=52 Cooking one chicken usually gives us two full meals, soup, and about 6 sandwiches.

    I am a vegetarian, so none.

    I have also noticed that my DH, who is not a vegetarian, does not order chicken anymore when we go out. It looks too much like the ones at home that have names.

    We eat chicken almost every night in the week, and all of it is our own. Right now, we are negotiating trades of things like our chicken for venison, or beef and things of that nature.

    Quote:I second that.

    I don't have the heart to eat my own chickens. I know they are better but right now they are my babies. If and when the time comes, I may have to eat them. I will.

    We eat poultry about 3 times a week. All of it is our own.
