Default Went to the farmer's market today

I went to the local farmer's market today after contacting a couple poultry farmers via email. Everyone was super friendly and interested in talking dogs.

I have an agreement to buy old laying hens, whole and plucked, for $3 each, and they average between 5-6 pounds.

I also got offered free, live wild pigs, that a farmer traps, that are too small to sell. 50 pounds and under. He's going to call the next time he traps a small one and I'm going to test drive it with the dogs and see how it goes. Many suggest freezing for over 30 days to help kill parasites, so I'm going to go that route.

Time for another freezer
