That being said, we never raised them when I were a lad. We shot wild ones, but that was seldom.
We kept chickens and pigs. About 3 pigs (bought just-weaned in the spring, fed all year, and killed in early winter and salted down) would feed our family of 5 all the pork we wanted. Fifteen chickens laid all the eggs we could eat.
If times changed and we had to do it again, both I and my kids are ready, willing, and able. That's more than most of the world can say!
