Farmer Boy

At our first Z.A.S. meeting we learned how to butcher a chicken. Calvin asked to take care of his own chicken from start to finish. He was given first pick.
The work was much harder than he thought it would be, but he hung right in there.
Every bit of this boy is bursting with pride. He has the heart to feed his family when it counts. He learned all about the anatomy of a chicken in the bargain.
He brought his bird home and made chicken and dumpling soup. It was the best chicken soup I've ever had, being full of my boy's pride.
