When I lived in Kentucky, I ordered my chickens from the Sears 
catalogue.  We would order 100 chicks at time and when they were 6 weeks 
old, kill all of the roosters but two, clean them, pluck them and freeze 
them.  The other two roosters had a long happy life and we had fertile eggs.

I spent my time cooking, gardening and taking care of 3 children.  I didn't 
even have a Leica or a computer.  It was a different world - only 20 years ago.
