Supposedly chickens get tougher the older they are (like anything?). I have chickens starting their third year at the moment. Only about half of the original flock, with more pullets bought every spring, and the occasional hen that is allowed to be broody hatching out another half dozen here and there.
We have some "free range cats" on our front porch. We're pretty sure they are a sister and brother that someone couldn't find homes for. When she went into her first heat and they knew what that meant they just drove out to a dirt road, dumped out the box and hoped they'd be able to figure their way out of it fast enough...
I'm calling her "football" at the moment because of the way she is shaped lately.
So, you're saying that if I were to fall into the hands of cannibals, I'd be good for, what, jerky?
