Goodbye Earl -- Earl Has to Die

I have chickens. I have roosters - usually two. All my chickens and Roos have names.

I don't put up with obnoxious or mean roosters. My family knows if I start calling a rooster "Earl" rather than his real name .. he's on borrowed time.

This morning, Bert .. became Earl.

And Earl has to die. Goodbye Earl.



He got mad at a hen that wasn't interested in being bred (because she has a chick) .. so he grabbed the chick by the head and began shaking it .. that's when he an I had a discussion ..

Goodbye Earl.

RIP Earl!

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".

Mmmm, fried Earl!

I'm getting chickens this year for meat and eggs. Any roo that turns out to be nasty will be dinner.

He's not the first .. won't be the last. I LOVE my nice roos ..

It's kinda like colts .. I've never made it to two-years old with an intact colt.. As soon as they start that nipping, rearing crap .. off with their jewels!! lol.

I'm thinking maybe this should have been posted in the cooking forum?
