A few less chickens


Well I finally finished harvesting all the chickens this weekend. It is incredibly hard with an 16 month old. Averaged about 1 an hour. I also let them go way tooooooo long they are about 12 weeks old and huge!

As usually I buried the remains but this time I did a little ritual/offering with them. I know blood is not usually an offering but as a pagan and a homesteader I live close to nature and the cycle of life, so I wonder how much of the "no blood" is preached by people scared of being associated with satan. I am not saying I would kill a chicken just to offer up its blood. But I am benefitting from the sacrafice of the chicken and I felt compelled to share some of that in a humble offering.

I agree. It would feel right to offer the blood back to the earth and the spirits.

That is a very Native American thing to do and there is nothing wrong with it. emoticon
