Why did the chicken cross the road?

To get away from the Cummards!

So the Cummard family has a bunch of chickens that we raise for the eggs.
They were building a bigger coup so when it was done all the kids had to chase down the chickens to put them in. This was not an easy task, J caught 3, Hudson didn't catch any but we got him a pic with the chicken ( he was so excited)

They also decide to kill and cook one of the "fryer" chickens.
So we all gathered around to watch the slaughter. I know, don't judge.



Jackson was actually really into it, not it a crazy way. I am actually the same way.
Here it is after they feathered, skinned and gutted it.
and this is the finished product. A whole lot of work for one Chicken. Glad I can still get my chicken at the good old fashioned store!

I'm still scarred from 3rd grade when we had to watch a snake kill and eat a live rat. The poor little guy was jumping all over trying to get away, and the snake just squeezed it do death! I guess ever since then I haven't really enjoyed seeing an animal die right in front of my face! I'm glad someone does though, because I loovve to eat!

Yeah- that post disgusted me. Sorry dude. I was literally wincing as I scrolled through the pictures. But, I am sooooo excited about your food blog! I always wish I could get recipes from you and now I have them at my fingertips. You have always been such a good cook and you have the best recipe ideas.
