Remembering One Of My Seven Rooster Slaughters To Date
It is all still SO intense for me...no wonder I keep procrastinating on my first Muscovy Duck kill. But I am healthiest by FAR when I am an omnivore who eats a few small pieces of meat weekly, (long time friends are SO glad I stopped being a vegetarian in 1998 or so) yet wish to stop buying factory farmed animals' flesh. So I need to "man up" and deal. I think these pics are from my second rooster slaughter, a very large very mean Barred Rock. The pic of the roasted rooster is of rooster number five in this ongoing process that for me is powerful, disturbing, yet vital to my evolution as an urban farmer determined to fully Occupy my life.
