And then there were two

It just wasn't working out with 2 ganders to one female, so today, we had to cull one of the males - thank you, Jami and Rob, for the use of the extra large pot!!

It was a lot of work...not really difficult like brain surgery is, but plucking and eviscerating was quite time-consuming, back-breaking, and smelly. Makes us really appreciate all the hard work that goes into a sanitized little package of styrofoamed meat in the supermarket. If most people had to kill their own meat at least once, they'd probably never complain about the price of meat at the store again!

Actually, that applies to every product out there...for example, if people had to make their own shirts, they'd never complain about having to pay a reasonable price for fair wages for factory workers who make the shirts. Somebody, or something, somewhere, is getting majorly screwed for all the dirt-cheap products we North Americans buy. Co-op America can tell you much more about that.
