With the passing of all of our ducks (see previous journal entry, brief: dog attack), our time is mostly concerned with caring for our turkeys and chickens. The meat breed of chickens we have this year is growing very healthily and slowly, which is how you want your food. We also have six turkeys this year, which is a lot of turkeys. We may be able to sell some at the holidays, but for now we’re thinking sausage might be in order. Is it a faux pas to harvest your animals before they’re ready for slaughter?
