05 Time to Tend the Chickens:

… have i mentioned that i and a group of friends share the responsibilities of feeding and caring for a bunch of chickens?… there are somewhere between 20 and 30 of them… in exchange we get fresh eggs… we also raise chickens for meat, sometimes ducks, turkeys and even goose, which we then participate in harvesting… the harvesting part was hard for me at first, still is to some degree, but i firmly believe that every meat eater should confront an animal that they plan to eat and take part in taking its life… it hasn’t dissuaded me from eating meat, but i do so with a little more reverence than before…

… at any rate, this is to say, that’s all for now… it’s my turn to tend the chickens today…
