Making the best of an unfortunate situation, volunteers pluck and clean the 19
chickens which were killed in their pen the night before by either skunks or a
large cat. As a lesson in frugality, once again, reality proves to be the best teacher.
Some of the meat from the birds will be used in the Cafe
this weekend, and the rest will be served at the Thanksgiving meal later in the
week. Photo and text by Benjamin Ericson.
