Geez I responded this morning. . . where'd it go. . . maybe I "forgot" to hit the submit button, but I don't think so.

Anyway, for drying chicken feet, use 1 box of salt to 1 box of baking soda. Mix them in a bucket and bury the chicken feet in the mixture. Leave the bucket open to the air (if it's closed the moisture cannot escape) for 2-3 weeks. Even well dried, real chicken feet have a shelf life.
What would Wavy do?

"Even well dried, real chicken feet have a shelf life." How long a shelf life brother Mark? Will coating with a varnish or other sealant prolong it?

Sealing them would help. Around here, I'd say between one and years without if you're careful with them. It's not too bad, they don't smell bad, they just start to disintegrate. The salt/baking soda is very close to the natron the Egyptian's used for mummification (the things you learn teaching elementary school), but they had a significantly drier climate than most folks here in the US and mummified Egytians have a better internal structure than a chicken's foot. Summer's in VA run around 80% relative humidity on a nice day and significantly higher in late July/early August. I'm sure that's higher than where you are Ron, but not by too much, I'm thinking.

I'm not sure what a good sealant would be. . . but a varnish might do the trick. I'll have to do some reading up and see what I can find. Something that would retard exposure to air and moisture would be good, but something not so thick that the feet end up shiny.

You're still first on my list when I "do the deed" but it's not something I really look forward to doing. Chickens have this unnerving ability to suddenly look cute and loving when you're holding a sharp tool. Little bast@rds.

And may I add, that unlike the eggs, home raised chickens do not taste as good as the lovely, plump, anonymous birds you buy in the grocery store.

Okay, that's probably too much information.

I don't understand why animal bones are so creepy to people. I mean people are barbaric enough to cut the animal apart and put pieces of its bloody flesh in their mouths so why do people find its bones creepy?
personally id shoot a motherf*****r before I killed an animal. especially to use its bones in some magic effect. but that's just me.
why not be a real creep and buy human bones?? theyre all over ebay and worth the hundred bucks youd spend on them. and far more bizarre.
Revolutionary but gangster

Mark the chicken thing reminded me of a performer at FISIM years ago ; who controlled the chicks he produced via cups and balls routine by snapping their tiny legs. I Remember his name, but will not repeat it here.
