Quite often I
waste time at the computer browse through our local Craigslist ads. Last night I was pretty excited to see an ad for 30 lbs of chicken feet from pasture raised meat birds. 30 lbs for $25. A raw dog food feeder's dream. I picked them up this morning. 30 lbs is a lot of feet. It's hard to tell by the photo, but that box of feet is quite deep.
Here's a close up of the top of the foot.
And here's the bottom. Kind of a bit creepy aren't they. They make me think of starfish or octopuses.
I've been laying them on cookie sheets and trying to freeze them individually. It's taking a long time to get them all done. I thought about trying to count them at one point, but there are way too many. Not that I can't count that high, in case you were wondering:). The dogs have eaten a few today, they give them the thumbs up. I'm wondering if they might start thinking of those chicken legs walking around out there in the field a little differently from now on?
And me, well I'm starting to find them really creepy. They are looking more and more like dead hands. Maybe like witches hands. Haunted house prop maybe.
