Title Gleaning
Description As the pullets grew, the roosters were used for spring fries and the hens were put in with the family flock. I became very attached to my chickens and I hated to see them killed. There was one big, red rooster that I really had a hard time giving up. I had nursed him through a broken leg, splints and all it took to keep him alive. But the time came when he had to go. He got into too many bloody fights with a neighboring rooster. My parents reimbursed me for the chickens they used. With the money, I purchased Saving Stamps, which 1 redeemed after the war. It made me feel important because I had aided in the war effort. As I recall this gleaning experience and what it meant to me in my early life, I realize how far removed it is from the world of today. -39-
