Well, now, let me add some more of that to the story. I am surely not a good judge of the epitome of cuisine,.........in other words,..my taste buds do the walking! I said that to say this, don't know if you have any around your area or not but around here is a chain of stores called "Dodge's." It's a quik-stop, etc. but they offer 10-15 different items under their "sun lamp", and the one and only best is their hot/spicey wings!(I say that because that's all I've tried). You can buy 6, 8, 10, 12 or 18. Sometimes I'll take a Country or a Western mag. with me and eat 8 of them there at a booth by myself. Other times, I'll get 18 of them and they'll last at home for several days. The Belle will have nothing to do with them,....and they are rather potent!!!! But I don't / can't cook and I like 'em just fine.

Thank ya for the kind invite! It's just a tad bit out of my way, so you'll have to eat a donut for me! Glad you have a good church home.
BTW, I don't remember that particular avatar pic of you(?). Maybe I've not been very observant ... But that pic hasn't been here before!

I tried a loco moco a couple days ago. Really good! On the plate goes 2 scoops cooked rice, then a thick fried hamburger patty, next a sunny side up egg on top of all that. Topped off with gravy . Craziest bunch of stuff but Surprisingly good! Oh, HOT wings? All yours. Lol

Cute! Yes!! Good entertainment value! I love chick days at the farm store!
I am into the 2nd week on mine in a cattle water trough in my outbuilding with a heat lamp attached on each end. I won't move them up to the main chicken house on the hill until they are a bit older. We raised our chicks a bit longer than you stated in your recap of chickens from days gone by. Our's were not butchered until about 6-8 weeks, not 4.

I believe I am going to get some ducks. Some breeds lay as much or more eggs than chickens do. I've never ate or cooked with duck eggs but I hear they are good, really good for baking. I've read that they are better for you than chicken eggs. The meat is also good, not as fat as chicken. There's a strain of Muscovy ducks that will get to 12lbs in about 12 weeks!
I want to hatch out some chicks in June so they will lay good all winter like my pullets that hatched last June did the winter.
I normally hatch a few chicks twice a year, January and June. Last year for what ever reason, I delayed until August and that was too hot and I had trouble controlling the temperature and the eggs over heated.

I don't care for duck eggs or meat. The eggs are a much richer flavor and are better for baking but I just don't like the taste of a fried or boiled duck egg. Also, ducks will be a bit more difficult to control where they lay the eggs and my past experience with having ducks here at the homestead is that in their search for water, they are more susceptible to varmits and I have never been very lucky with raising ducks.

Timing at my Church is just the opposite with Sunday School at 9:45 and Worship at 10:45 am. We also have an OutReach service at the local nursing home concurrent with the earlier Sunday School times. We arrive at 9 am and wheel the patients that wish to attend to the community room. Then have a short service from 9:30 to 10:15 and we receive such a blessing seeing those old folks smiling and singing the old Gospel songs. Since their eyesight is not that good for reading the Hymnal, we always choose the old tried and true Hymns that they have sung all their lives and already know and can join in on at least the Chorus. Ending the Outreach at 10:15, then allows the volunteers to get the patients back to their rooms and still make it to the 10:45 Worship service at Church.
I only volunteer for the OutReach during the longer summer hours which allows sufficient time for me to take care of my chickens, then get ready, and drive into town. Winter time just does not afford enough daylight to do all that and still make it by 9 am since it is about a 20-30 minute drive from here to the nursing home.

@MM... Hot Wings... I like to get the wings plain with the hot sauce and bleu cheese on the side for light dipping. The pre-covered "Fire House" wings are just way too hot and just the aroma burns my nose and makes my eyes water before I even get a taste. LOL

I'm wanting to add to my little collection but, well, I just don't know what I'd enjoy most. I'm getting postcards from the vets office for the dog and cats to come in for their yearly shots so there will go a handful of cash. Maybe I'd better wait on any additions ...
If you know any local "chicken people" you could probably borrow an incubator and hatch out some eggs pretty cheap or even for free. That's probably what I'm going to do. I need to hatch out some new layers and then will eat the roosters. Need to put some meat in the freezer!

I've been told they are a lot different than chickens. One thing is all the poop, but one man's poop is another man's fertilizer. lol (That just doesn't sound right at all! LOL) I have never tried duck eggs but I do like the meat. I have seen those muscovy breast cooked up and they look so good. Some say it is almost like a good cut of beef. I'm going to try some ducks and see what happens.

I know you never read this thread but if you'd stick around long enough maybe you could enjoy its dynamics. Reading a day or twos entries just will not make much sense. So hang around, see what's its about and join in.
