Oh, how much easier we have it now! Less work, more time for play. 1913, preparing Christmas dinner.

Feel so sad for the goose. I used to have about 20 on our ranch. Never ate any.

My grandfather used to raise chickens for food way back in the '20s through the '50s ... I remember watching him 'harvest' them ... because it was our source of food, it wasn't considered a negative thing but as an essential part of our lives. We did have banty roosters, ducks, and rabbits as pets and they received the best of treatment and care for years on end. People did what was necessary to survive back then.

It amazes me that anyone would have anything negative to say. This is how it was done!

Growing up on a small farm this was a way of life. Dad killed the chickens, Mom dunked them in boiling water and my sister and I plucked the feathers.
As you said Jennifer Heyser, we did what was necessary. The added benefit was that we knew exactly what OUR farm animals ate, no growth hormones, no grain tainted by pesticides or chemicals. I wish I could provide my grandchildren with the way of life I had.

back then people didn't just rush out to a grocery store to get their meats and produce. you farmed and raised your own food and it was better than anything you can get in a store today.

Marilyn Norton-Nesler Me too. Sometimes if my dad wasn't' home it was my job to kill the chicken. It was part of life. We would have gone hungry if not. We lived in AZ, 6 kids and my dad worked in the copper mines. Hauled in water . No picky eaters then. lol .

People today are so disconnected from their food sources. Everything tastes better when it’s farm fresh.

When you know real hunger, you dont criticize ppl for there food choices! Frankly, this is organic and sustaniable and food is not our friend. Be responsable with it, not foolish

My paternal grandfather born in 1913 on the boat between NY an NJ. His Birth certificate officially said NJ as the state he was born in.

My grandmother used to sell chickens at Pike Place Market. Dad said she could kill, pluck and clean a chicken in less than a minute.

Roxanne Dixon You´re vegetarian? If not, how do you think your meat happened?

No, I'm not vegetarian, I am fully aware f how meat happened, growing up on farm and I have never eaten rabbit! I found the whole experience of plucking revolting. Also we didn't eat chicken, goose, anything feathered.

Pluck the goose - down pillows, coverlets. Fat - good for skin. Liver - pate or gravy. Christmas goose - once a year treat.

When I was small we were taught how to clean chickens , rabbits all small game animals ,after you learn how and clean a few you get fast at it and don't pay no attention to it .

I remember my stories of my grandmother grabbing up chickens and then wringing their necks (literally)! You did what you had to do

I can remember my mom lighting a wood stick and using it to burn off the pins (she called them pins) from the feathers. I can still smell it.

My gramma and Granpa would buy live chickens from a farm, and bring them home in a burlap bag in the trunk. They would then chop their heads off, and I would help dunk them in boiling water to remove the feathers, to be used for pillows, and tic's. This was in the 60's/70's.
