Tender Chicken

When it came time for the meat birds to be butchered at Fat Rooster Farm in Royalton, Vt., apprentice Whitney Taylor had trouble parting with one of the chickens because she had become attached it. This picture didn’t originally make it into the book I was working on in 2008, but I like the photo’s tenderness when I look at it now. (Poopie Poo was spared that day and lived a full life on the farm.)
