    When I was 10 years old we stayed at a relatives farm in Sawyer,Mi. I watched them butcher chickens. That evening chicken was served. I didn’t eat it. It was several years before I was able to eat chicken. Great column! I understood how Elizabeth felt about eating chicken.

    I have always told my husband if we had a herd of animals it was fine for meat but when you have one or two they get named and that means they are pets and we don’t eat our pets lol

    When I was a small child we had a guinea hen. It was very pretty, and us kids made a pet of it. Dad was out of a job with seven children to feed, so our guinea hen got picked for dinner. I do not remember any of us kids partaking of this bird at the dinner table. Daddy said he would never do that again. Later on we had a rabbit and chicken farm. We loved to pick up the baby rabbits from the hutch, they were so soft and cute but we never made pets out of them. There were too many.
