Hi Owen! I see chickens on the loose around here all the time.

In urban & rural areas too.

I should get a long handled fishing net & nab my supper on the way home.

One time I pulled into work & there was a domestic wild turkey there ( if there is such a thing!)

I told a Buddy that raised turkeys & he said to grab a cardboard box & we caught it!

It was a tom & there would be no way we could catch a wild one.

He had all hens & bred it with them.

He gave me one of its offspring & it was the best turkeys we ever ate.

I have never been there for a beer truck crash but that would be cool.

The guy that lives behind me had a flock of 30 chickens that he caught around here. A weasel got in & nearly wiped them all out but he sold us one that he killed himself.

It was darn tasty.

The Surrey peacocks were on the news here this summer, but nary a squawk since.

I lived beside some ball fields that were covered in everything Canada geese.

Too bad they don't taste any good because you could pick one off with a rock.

Peacocks are just as well loved. They get loose a lot too.

A few years back, I cooked a Canada goose and a Pinkfoot goose for Christmas dinner, the Canada was delicious, and the tastier of the two birds.  I'd heard all sorts of stories about them being tough and tasteless  but this one was really good.

If you've never plucked and gutted a chicken/turkey, then you've missed some pretty nasty smells. When I was a kid, we killed our own chickens, plucked and gutted them. The smell was so terrible that I couldn't eat chicken for years and years. I'll take my chicken already killed, plucked and gutted and cut up and in a plastic wrap, thank you.

Sherry : I helped a guy kill & clean 24 chickens for a big party once.

I didn't eat any either!

We have 3 kinds of grouse and 2 kinds of ptarmigan here.
Really very little on them except the breast meat.

Field dressing any of those birds takes about 20 seconds or less
to have 100% clean breast meat and all the rest is gone.

I've often wondered if that could be done with a regular farm chicken.

Sherry, we used to hunt ruffed grouse religiously during season. They have a smell that makes chickens almost bearable!
