full moon rising over the beech tree tonight

Blood moon, or Hunter’s moon.  This is the moon when the excess animals are traditionally slaughtered as there is usually not enough fodder for the winter.  We are running low on feed for the chickens at the moment.  I am sure the local farm feed supplier will have plenty for the winter, and more.  I still think of killing though.  I think that if I find out which one of them is eating the some of the eggs then we will have a splendid chicken soup.
