Food from Craigslist
In our area we often have ads for free livestock, mostly roosters. If they are close enough we will get them and put them in a tractor (Death Row) to get bigger and then in the freezer they go. Over the years we have collected quite a bit of food this way. We have gotten male rabbits too. We have foregone goats, really no place to keep them yet. I don't feel bad about this as we feed them well and give them a comfy place to live, they are humanly treated and processed , since we keep them for several weeks any undesirable food they may have had is out of their system before we process them. We never get animals the owner wants to give away as pets. Although the last three roosters were so pretty my husband took pity on them. they are Swedish Isobar roosters so we put one in with the pullets and he just let the other two roam, that was a mistake and we did have to butcher one, the other has integrated himself, but Walter is the Alpha. Is this something anyone else has done? How has it worked out for you?
