Oh, no, I wasn’t at all..it was just a funny update...my friends and we thought it was simply funny that a mean bird tasted mean too...he was tough...after 5 hrs of simmering on the stove...and three days before in the fridge of brine like instructed...but it was as just a funny sidenote

Besides...most of it was for show...yes, I had a hammer..the kind you put nails in the walls for pictures ...yes I chased, while Chris caught with the hook...it was meant to be a FUNNY post because I showed how mean he was before....I don’t understand...

So...update...we finally made Spike into chicken soup....we decided to go that route after seeing how much fat he had on him, and thinking...wow, he must be really old? So, he made really awful soup...he’s terrible! Chris is still going to eat him, because that’s the way he feels about farm animals...if you raise them, and care for them...you can at least reap every benefit of them....even when it tastes bad...hmmmm. This is not the first animal he’s forced himself to eat, nor will it be the last...but, it’s money well spent in his eyes, and the chickens were safe while Spike did his job. So, I guess that’s as good as it can get.
Ode to Spike
Spikey Spikey sharp as tacks
Folks don't ever turn your backs!!
With iron spur he ruled the coop
Till the hammer fell....and he was soup.:hmm

A chicken farmer does what he has to do. Why would anyone want to put him off on someone else? He's better off where he is. @Duckfarmer1 - I think you did what was best for "Spike".
