The Hen and Rooster Game
At two a.m. Monday morning I helped (not too much) unload 8,900 plus hens and roosters in to a church members chicken house. It took four hours to unload the chickens, that is two tractor trailer loads of chickens in that little amount of time. It was an art form watching the skilled men grab the chickens two at a time in each hand and guide each of them to their elevated nesting boxes where water and feed awaited the animals. The reason it was so early was because chickens die in the heat very quickly, the early cool hour prevented this. It was a great experience and I hope you may have the opportunity to see where your food comes from.
