I would. He's going to freak the f**k out of at least one kid. I personally wouldn't have told him. He doesn't need to know that poppa is going to Off his dinner.



I'm rather worried that he wants to participate in the "chopping off the legs" ...

Oh I can so relate-and yes I would give the teacher a heads up for sure. We live on a farm (have cattle, turkeys, chickens, pheasants, etc) and my Goddaughter came to visit. My oldest (7 at the time) showed her the cows and non-chalantly walked around a dead lamb my husband was literally digging the whole for-and it very much upset my GD. My husband is also a butcher by trade and during hunting season(which is now, here) he may get up to a couple hundred dear and quite a few moose, and when skinned go out in a bucket to be rid of later when he is finishesd-so I heads upped all the therapists that come to our houae every day because it gags me,lol Sorry for the typos my kid wrecked my keyboard and the backspace and other keys dont work,lol

We're actually splitting the cost with my dad. They want 65, we're paying 30 and my dad is paying the rest

We live in farm country, and possibly will have to butcher our own chicken within the year.



You want me to shield an almost 7 year old? It's kind of impossible.



Especially when poppa butchers his own food. I'm sure he saw my dad butcher his rabbits. So it's kind of normal for us.



It's the other kids I'm worried about.

My papa grew up eating it because they were really poor and my MIL got some at Feast of the Hunter's moon. I tried it but I'm pretty sure their rabbit was actually chicken.

Exactly.



bunnies are cheap meat and easy to raise. Great for rabbit stew.



When I was younger we raised rabbits all the time.

I was explaining this to my son today.



This is how they did it before there were stores, in rural areas and in other parts. It's how people survived.



You really have to look at it like it's food, not a friend. If you look at it like that it's hard.



I've gotten better at cutting up things. We butchered the turkeys yesterday and today I had to gut mine, cut out the neck. I did pretty well.



I use to throw up.

Honestly I think it's disgusting but if my family was hungry, we'd eat it.

Exactly.



when I went up to pick up my dad's turkey they offered us a 2nd one and only charged us 30. 30 for a naturally grown turkey? I need to feed my family. It was worth it. I could never afford that much meat in my life. I took it.
