Please note that I said it was the funniest thing I've ever read on THIS forum. On a different forum, long ago, I once read a post that had me literally rolling on the floor. A fellow asked how he could eliminate "the funny taste in my holding tank."

I'm now certain the answer had to do with chickens.

Chicks Onboard!

Well, chickens might help keep the bugs & slugs down. The 200 pounds of chicken feed will provide valuable ballast and will stabilize your boat in rough weather. As for customs, spend the $20.00 and get 'em a passport - there's a guy on the corner in LA... If they still hassle you, tell them that they are crew members and what do they have against short, uniquely dressed French people...

Here to help,

O' MacDonald

Bunnies taste like chicken and they have beautiful brown eyes if you're lonely and they're soft.

I have been away from my computer for a while and returned to find alot of activity I know its a pretty silly idea but then again why not (assuming the chickens are eaten the night before entering port) The main reason for this idea is that me and my two buddies are going to be sailing on a very very tight budget and most likely will not have a fridge, and fish is fine and dandy the first week but frankly it gets old after that much repitition and I like eating warm blooded animals more, as far as the smell I'm sure 3 24 year old guys in a 35' boat are bound to smell much worse than a few chickens in the open breeze, now who has col. sanders secret recipe??

You have missed the serious replies concerning the logistics and expense I suppose.

If you catch as many fish as most then it won't get old because you will be soooo very hungry between catches it will be like nirvana.
Can you spell s-t-a-r-v-e?

Maybe you can "encourage" a steady supply of food in this manner:

No kidding. At this point I think MDhiilon should have a VERY good idea of what to do. I guess you could say that he ....opened up a can of worms! At least you could feed the chickens AND the fish with them.....

Colonel Sanders...I remember the stuff from before Pepsi bought it and I'll swear there's no way there are eleven herbs and spices in there. These days they all seem to specialize in the tabasco flavored version though, I still can't taste eleven anything in there.

Of course if you don't want to eat the chicken before making port...makes good shark bait, turns four pounds of chicken into a couple of hundred pounds of fresh fish, that can be carried into port, right?
