    Thats so cool! How old is he? I think its great that he understands the whole this is where our food comes from thing... I have an 8 yr old, a 14 yr old, and my DH.... I even mention having a rooster processed, they'll start crying! I've tried and tried to explain to them that its not a mean thing to do etc.... they don't care! My husband has gone as far to name the ones I don't want to keep! [​IMG] Last fall, I was going to process about 8 roosters, and my husband had a bigger fit than the kids! No freezer roosters for me!
