    Speaking of lifetime commitments, I am giving away my 4 CL roosters tomorrow to a friends dad that is going to eat them (good thing I named them Piccata, Marsala, Kiev, and Parmesan!). So this is the first time for me doing this. I know others process them and send them to freezer camp. I know it will get easier to do, since I never thought I would do it at all and now I am. But am I the only one that feels so darn guilty??

    She's a 'Yup' chicken. People ask what she is, and I say "Yup, she's a chicken". In truth, some sort of small game mix. We have a large free range flock at my previous job, and they are all mutts. Some are still obviously related to the fighting chickens down the road. She is small, 2/3 the size of my LF girls, flighty as heck, and tri colored barred.
