I thought about them, poor critters.

Thank you, little foodies.
Mercy for them too, Lord.

Those poor little things were probably better off.
Otherwise, they'd end up on someone's dinner plate.
Either way, it really sucks being a chicken these days!
I was born a cold and dark ember unable to see in the darkness that engulfed me. However, someone cared enough to place me into a growing group of glowing white-hot embers. These glowing white-hot embers embraced me and redirected their glowing white-hot effulgence towards me. As a result, I began to glow and grow until one day, I also became a glowing and white-hot ember as well! ~cm

Tissue  Dang it.... Horrible... I knew this was gonna happen but as long as it was just a thought and not reality, I was ok with it. I am not ok with this. Tissue I know, I know, they had no way to remove all those animals, I get it. I don't have to like it but I really do get it and I can not blame the farmers or anyone for this. Stuff just happens that we can not control sometimes. Stuff that sucks and makes me cry. This is so depressing. I may be scared of those dang pigs but I don't wish death on them. They are like alligators to me. Don't wish alligators to die either. Just stay far away from me is good.  V6sRZf4

The bad thing is going to be disposing of all those bodies. You need a backhoe to bury that many animals. It's not like the family farm that just needs a backhoe to bury the horse and a shovel to bury your chicken flock. This is going to be a mess. But I guess Hurricane Matthew's experience will come in handy... This is so sad.....

And it's sad for the food table too. NC is the second ranked state for pork. https://www.pork.org/facts/stats/structu...inventory/

NC is number 2 for turkeys, 4 for broilers (chickens) and 8 for layers (chickens). https://www.farmflavor.com/north-carolin...y-poultry/

This is just NC too. Other states have been impacted by this haven't they? Well.... chickens don't take so long to grow up for broilers but it will take them a few months to start laying eggs again if they lost the layers. And the hogs... takes a little time and effort to put fat on a hog. I haven't looked into hogs because they freak me out so I don't know anything at all about them but to run away from them. Shoot, I know a whole lot more about alligators than I know about hogs and I just consider hogs alligators. I know what I need to. Run away from them. Good enough for me.  Aaahhh

But it's going to be all that crap those animals produce that is disgusting and take a little while to clean itself up. Earth's recycling natural stuff. But it's still going to be disgusting for a while.

Might want to buy that Thanksgiving turkey today. They do not have time to replace all those turkeys they were going to send out at Thanksgiving. Might not be eating ham and turkey for Thanksgiving this year. Dang it, I think I am going to go buy a turkey today. And I don't even like turkey either but the rest of the family does. Crap. Might even buy a ham. Need to see where... Anyway, got to go shopping today, it's my day to take my best friend and me to the grocery store. Need to roll up some cigarettes and things to do today.  Chuckle

Aaahhh

All the snakes and not just the usual water ones. I'd expect to see lots of snakes in the trees. They don't have to eat daily so them sitting in a tree for a few days is not a problem. They were already on the move anyway with the ground already being saturated. They will find any high ground to go to and hide so it's good to be careful when moving stuff around. If your house got flooded, might want to look for snakes and other critters that washed in with the flood.

For all the noise about snakes, I do not see that many of them. And I know I'm all over their territory sometimes. I pick blackberries and raspberries. Get wild raspberries vines and they grow like crazy. Snakes tend to hide. I cut a big black snake out of some netting a few years ago. I'm hoping it made it. Like those black snakes, good for pest control.

@sybdragon Not just Matthew but years of experience with this type of tragedy.I'm so glad I moved away from that pig farm years ago. They are a horrible mess after a storm like this. It sucks but unless we all want to be vegans,they have to raise the stock somewhere 1dunno1
I still haven't checked on the Tar river yet. I know the Neuse crested over the weekend,some places to Floyd levels.

I don't eat a lot of meat but I still do love some good bacon grease for cornbread and for frying some stuff and flavoring a whole lot of stuff or it doesn't taste right. I like my chickens and eggs. Diary and me are best friends. I understand the need for these type of operations if everyone wants to eat meat and I do understand how family farms can not do it because there are not enough of them. And people want to live rural and the rural areas are getting chopped up into littler and littler pieces of property. They still need ways to dispose of the waste that does not happen with small family farms. It's ruining the rivers with algae and I do not see why they don't ship it up to the grain fields that are using chemical nitrogen fertilizers to use on those fields. They can ship the stuff somewhere and dehydrate it somehow to a solid form preferably with high heat to kill all the pathogens and diseases and then powder it and spread it out. Don't they already do that with some stuff now? Why can't they do this with all that mess too? I mean, selling the chicken manure as fertilizer is great. I would buy it. You would not believe how big your smoke plants get in it. It's one of the reasons you have chickens and pen them up. So this stuff is easy to collect. Chuckle

Personally, I would like for the .govs to consider planting fruit trees, vines, and brambles in the parks. It would bring in birds and other wild animals and also it would be fun to go down into an orchard and pick something. If they would ask for volunteers to prune it and all that. They could even run some classes on pruning and get the students to 'practice' on them for free. As far as fertilizing them goes, that can also be volunteered out. They might be surprised at the response to it.

Now that they are going to replant some trees, maybe if it's suggested that some of those be fruit and nut trees? Nut trees will produce every other year nicely without fertilizer but not fruit trees. Fruit trees need some work but they are worth it if someone does the work. Probably why they are not planted too. I'm thinking a high school or college agi class could take care of them if the .gov bought them the fertilizers and fungicide. Worth a checking into if they are going to landscape and all again.

Gotta run, I'm running late as usual dang it. Eyeroll
