I've plucked chickens! I totally forgot about it. I've been there when they kill the chickens by ringing their necks. Not pretty, but reality if you want to eat. I've caught and cleaned fish. I forgot that side of my life. Thanks for the reminder.

I was raised on a 250 acre lemon ranch with bunk house, cook house for the workers and packing house for the lemons. We raised rabbits and chickens for food and had horses on the ranch for plowing. The packing house was on the property by the railroad where the lemons were picked up and transported to Sunkist. My dad was foreman for 32 years.
When the owner died in the early 50's, the ranch was sold and subdivided and my dad bought a house on the property. He couldn't leave that property! But what good memories I have of playing baseball, kick the can, etc with the workers kids who lived at the opposite end of the packing house.
