@Oglala Also, even though the testicles are located inside the body cavity, they are sometimes removed by cutting through the ribs in the back. Then the rooster is a CAPON! Never seen it done but it sure doesn't sound easy. I bet it's harder on the poor rooster though. lol
Oh, my!! The things I'm learning today! I have had capons but didn't know it was a castrated chicken. Yikes.

I hate to break the news to you AW, I think you have been dethroned as Chicken George of the bird thread. Tough luck. Lol.
I don't think so UNA. They have identified that piece as to everything that it really is, just a dead mouse that fell into the batter. LOL

or a publicity stunt to keep from paying. I onced worked in restaurants and it is amazing how many people eat 3/4 of their meal before they find something wrong in hopes that they can get away without paying. They ought to know on the first bite. LOL

Haters = one male, two females. AB, what male despises everyone on here except maybe you? Don't post any names, just think for a minute. LOL.
Horrible about those deaths.
That news story is so,so sad. Poor little babies. They haven't even begun to really live. I just hope that they perished from smoke inhalation in their sleep.

Yep, the way to make capons is to make a small slit, tie a string to the thingy-ma-bob and attach to a brick on the other end of the string and drop the brick.

Una, I bet they don't even know about chicken "glasses". They are a small set of solid plastic "glasses" that fit over a chicken's beak so they cannot look straight ahead and pluck the sores on another chickens hiney. Without those glasses, a chicken with a sore hiney will get plucked to death. Those are not usually used except in mass production, not regular farm use.

Oh, I know what you mean.I have arthritis in many joints, and it is not pleasant. It gets worse if you don't keep moving around.

Oh, dear. I could have certainly done without the "dropped brick, string around thingy-ma-bob" story...

Rather a funny sight to see a chicken wearing red plastic Bay-Bans LOL. I once worked on an egg farm that produced about a 1000 eggs a day. My job was to install and remove the "glasses" from dead chickens, gather, grade, clean and candle the eggs. The dead chickens and spoiled or broken eggs were thrown into 55 gallon drums and taken to the hog farm for the hogs to eat. Anyone up for a pork tenderloin sandwich ? LOL

Well, I tried to do the judge its. I started with AW on comment #94. It went well until the "brick and thingy-ma-bob" comment..

Uhhh, there's not one to adequately fit that one.

So I skipped it and moved on with funny faces and hearts.....

I'll have to say, I didn't know about that. That's a bad way to go. LOL.

Not much difference in a hog and a chicken either one will eat most anything.

That is for sure. When an old sow has pigs, you have to separate them for the first few days except for feeding time otherwise the Sow might eat their own. I have seen hogs almost demolish a coal pile.

Oh, a dead mouse is the worst thing that could be. That reminds me of an episode of Preppers. The father in the family was a real fanatic. He had his teenage sons eat an earthworm, a dead mouse, and maggots (he had what he called the maggot hotel, where he grew them). I don't mind eating deer or wild rabbits, but there is where I draw the line. If I had to eat the gross stuff, I'd rather go on to the other side.

I never knew that. When I had chickens, I used to separate any that had a small sore on it because of that problem. Where on earth can you find chicken glasses. By the way, how did we get talking about these subjects anyway?

Hogs will eat any and everything. When I was a kid, a man would come to my grade school and collect garbage for his hogs. Back in those days we called it swill.
