That's the reason I won't let the kids name the ducks or chickens

That's just unfair. I suggest you simply give them a list of preferred names that they may use. ie:

Orange saucy
Buffalo wingy
Drumsticky
etc.

The post I put in the cooking/pairing forum has a guy from Down Under that did the same thing.

Ha, cold weather training I was issued "1 live rabbit each" that I had to hold onto for 6 days. Then on day 7 I had to kill and eat it. Helped keep me warm at night, gave me some exercise chasing the sucker down when it would try to make a break for it, and it tasted pretty good with lot's of hot sauce rehydrated apple sauce.
Man it's been years since I thought of little fluffy.

Our pet rabbit was going to be eaten had we not adopted it. Of course, that's not why we adopted it, it just happened that the breeder raised show-quality rabbits as a hobby. Rabbits not suitable for show were either sold as pets or eaten, making it a very multi-facetted hobby. Our rabbit was a runt. he doesn't know how lucky he got!

(but sometimes I wanna eat'm)

Damn - I just got my 9yo actually excited about raising rabbits for food this weekend after talking about it for 2 years and then I find this rabbit starvation BS. Great...


My friend's dad bought 2 turkeys when we were kids and named them Thanksgiving and Christmas.

All joking aside with the food-themed naming schemes, I think they are a great way to go, especially if you have kids. Calling your pigs by "Bacon" and "Porkchop" (as SWMBO's dad did when she was growing up) is bound to help the kids keep in mind the real purpose of raising these animals and to not treat them as much like a pet. I can see this making slaughter-day a less surprising and traumatic experience for kids, potentially.

Of course, I didn't grow up on a farm, so I really don't know if this is an issue. It wasn't for SWMBO, she says that was the best tasting ham EVAR! ;-)
