    Since my chicken fell into my life I have not been able to cook a whole chicken nor cut one up. I do relatively okay with pre-cut parts but the whole bird now creeps me out. My beef and pork intake has certainly increased.

    I’m a poultry farmer for meat and eggs. It does not bother me to go out and butcher one of my hens (or spare roosters). Different strokes for different folks.

    I'm a vegetarian, so can't comment.
    Although I will say I can't really stand to look at a whole processed chicken.

    LOL...it’s you :gig
    I still love my chicken!
    I cook extra ... so my chickens can rip it apart like monsters. It’s the one treat they’ll jump 2’ off the ground for...such bad manners.
    Some people say “what!”
    But hey...we all love our chickens one way or another.
    :oops:

    Hello and :welcome So glad you joined us! Hope you enjoy it here as much as we all do!

    Other folks probably feel the same as you. I can definitely cook a chicken, or cut one up. (No problem at all with that) but I'd never, ever, be able to cull one

    Uh-oh I may be softer than I thought. Guess I have spent too much time with her in my lap.
