    I do the rooster processing weekly and it doesn't get easier. Its part of it. Some are my first hatched and it upsets me a lot. They trust me. I do this because I want to know what my family is eating.
    What breed, heritage are pretty slow.
    I saved my bacon slabs from our first hog, will cold smoke once the temps stay below 45 degrees.

    W4W, yep, sticker bushes! Mylee called them "ticker thorns", she finally got the "s" for sticker this trip! that nice big thistle is between the broody pen and the lilac, it gives the birds a chance to dive into the lilac if Mylee is after them, she can't get through the thorns as fast as they can.

    The grey fox are what we have around here. Only saw a red fox once ages ago when I was young. The greys climb trees too, but they don't seem to like dogs, so haven't caused any trouble for us... yet. Hope yours moves on, one way or the other.
