    Regarding meat:

    When I processed 11 roos, I threw feathers in a trash can, wings, legs, breast in an ice chest and everything else - back, guts, liver, neck, gizzard, in a bucket.

    When I was done, I dumped the bucket of junk into the scalding pot and let it cook for a couple of hours. Then I put all that in a plastic bag and put it in the freezer.

    Occasionally, I take out the bag of crud and use a hatchet to hack some off, thaw it and throw it into the chicken yard. The chickens pick the bones clean. I throw the bones back over the fence and Rotten Dog Millie cleans that up. Recycling at it's best.

    Nobody has died yet.

    get a refrigerator shipping box and cut it down to a height you like. Makes a great brooder.

    That looks like 2 x 2 fencing. Where? How much? I need. [​IMG]

    It was purchased last year from Lowes on clearance for $9 for a 4'x50' roll. I guess there are perks to working at Lowes.

    Awe well for me I came home with a dead baby in the office brooder another on its last leg which I luckily caught in time when I heard screeming from an escapee little older cock and a dead one floating in the pool! OMG what a thing to come home to!! I til this day raz him about! Sorry about ur hens..hope they show up soon! I will tell u tho just today after thinking a hawk got one of my laying pullets at the least 2weeks ago! I noticed one of the roos checking out something under a tub turned upside down so not to house mosquitos and I go lift it and I was absolutely in shock that there was my poor girl! !!! She ran to eat scraps I'd just thrown out! I use a ton of !!!! because I really am still in shock! So she stumbled around and I snatched her up to give her her own space in the garage. I just can't believe that she is still alive after all that time and this was only 5 ft from the deck this whole time...how does that happen? !
