He also got some milk from a couple of local dairies that they couldn't sell. He'd store it in barrels, and of course it would sour. I time or two I forgot to put the lid back on it and a chicken would fly up onto the edge of the barrel, look at the clabber on top, think she could walk out on it, and she'd fall in and go to flapping and squawking. If I happened to be home I'd have to rush out there and get her out. There's no way to get a live chicken out of a barrel of sour milk and stay clean.
