Micro Entrepreneurism, Simple Living & Art
You know how you have things on your bucket list? Well now I’m going to talk about an item on my UNbucket list. This is the list of things that I simply never imagined myself doing, and yet feels monumental and noteworthy when its happened. I just made it up today because I did something that deserves being on it: chicken killing.
Useful chicken killing. The we-grew-our-own-chickens-and-now-its-time-to-kill-the-roosters-because-they-cost-too-much-to-feed-and-don’t-lay-eggs kind of killing. Plus, we’re going to eat them, or at least Hank is. I’m still a vegetarian.
Probably the first vegetarian to participate in a chicken killing. In truth, I tried every station but the actual chicken killing. The boys did all the neck slitting, and I was happy to let them. I did however pluck, clean, and eviscerate. And it didn’t really gross me out, or freak me out. I felt like the whole experience was an important lesson, and I was grateful to Agatha & David for letting us “help” them and in turn, them helping us.
Just never ever thought that I’d be helping to process chickens, but now that I have, I’m glad I did.
