Can I let my guard dogs eat them raw or should I cook them first?

That would be abuse towards your dogs.

Two foul fowl that I will not allow on the property are guineas and peacocks. The most annoying, useless birds ever invented.

Cats and dogs should eat raw food. But all those feathers are going to piss them off.

Hmmmm. They would make a mess too, huh.

I wonder if you could run them through a duck press, raw. Smoosh the edible stuff out & discard the rest.

Jacques Pépin or Susie would know. 1beer1

One has been roosting in our trees at night; screeching and driving our LGDs insane. This will end soon.

A warrant has been issued. DOE is yet to be determined. I may have lovely, long feathers available for only the cost of shipping, if anyone's interested.

I have neighbors that really want it on their dinner table. I'll keep the head and preserve the skull to museum quality. It'll be a nice addition to my collection.

What's really great is that it's summer and flies (= maggots) are abundant. They can clean out the skull, and most importantly the sinus cavities, with no damage to them at all.

I think the foxes got him. 1dance1

I didn't know foxes could climb trees. I watched one do it a couple nights ago.

For real? I didn't know foxes could climb trees either. That answers quite a few questions, doesn't it?

For real. It was one of the three that I caught on security cams, digging up Gopher World.

I darted out to the deck and growled at them. Two ran off. One ran about 3' up a tree then turned its head to look at me. It was hanging onto the tree trunk just like a cat! I growled again and it scampered up a few more feet. One more growl and up a few more feet. Another growl and it jumped to the ground and ran off.

Weird, huh Confused

When we would mount a specimen in uni, we'd pull the skin inside out cutting the feet as close to the claws as possible. The wings would've degloved entirely and the head would have the skin cutcaway at the beak. After the mealworms cleaned all of the meat left behind by the students, the cleaned skelatlon, with appropriate cotton "muscles" would be reinserted with glass eyes. Not professional taxidermy, but good uni level science work.


"Bigly!"

I learned many years ago (in Hope Town, Bahamas) th best way to clean a fresh conch shell is to gut the animal (yummy with fresh lime and onions--kind of like ceviche) then bury the shell in the ground for a week. The ants totally clean the thing out and leave it with no "fishy" odor at all. Most tourists don't do this, and their luggage reeks when they get home with their souvenir lol.

Sad to say, the last picture I saw of Hope Town showed my late MIL's home was completely blown away.
