I just walked into the garage with a rooster under my arm and asked my husband for an ax.....he looked up with a totally blank look on his face and asked "What in the world would you need an ax for?" I lifted the rooster up to show him and he responded with "Why are you gonna kill him?" I responded with "So we can eat him for dinner!" why else would i want an ax! after raising chickens for a year and a half and eating all the roosters except for two used for breeding he still is shocked everytime i butcher one! better get used to it with the new reports by the FDA on the arsenic content of factory raised chicken!
