A respectful tribute to all chicken, geese, ducks and turkeys which lost their lives for our christmas dinner

My Christmas story
Having a goose for Christmas is nothing unusual. Here is Georgia it is a bit more difficulty than it was in Germany. So I asked my landlord if he can organize one and he promised to try. So I went to do the other shoppings and surprisingly I ended up in front of 20 deep frozen baby turkeys. So I called immediately my landlord to ask if he succeeded already. Yes he said and continued: I stopped at a farm and asked if they would sell a goose. The lady farmer said yes but she is not here now but she comes home as every day at 3 o clock. All the time on his ride to another city he was thinking now about the poor goose who will come home as every day but today a sharp knife will wait for her. Now some hours later I cannot get rid of the story and I thought the best way of getting rid of something is to share it. So here I am with my todays set.

of course some of those are involved too

Thanks god Honey that we got this job in the zoo

      Great tribute to them... They also lost their lives in the Chinese New Year every year too.

      Beautiful animals. Like Cristina I don't eat meat and always avoided turkey at xmas. I hated the ide aof the poor things being fattened up just to be killed.

      Wonderful images - I particularly like #5.
      Gerd, do you know how long a turkey can last in the freezer? Only I asked my wife and she said it should be ok for about 3 months, but I put one in there last night and it was dead this morning! ;-)
