Where I live it is against council regulations to have a rooster. Where I spend my daytime hours is about 45 minutes out of town and everyone is allowed roosters. Thing is, people from the city are very sensitive to roosters crowing. If I get a phone call here they always say, "hey I can hear a rooster crowing!" They sound like it is something amazing - like they heard a dinosaur roaring or something. Also, sometimes I get out here before daylight and I can here roosters crowing all over the valley.
What I'm getting at is, with all the noise roosters make - yes they will be one of the first things to go. They will be like a siren blarring, "dinner's on... come and get it".
I think chickens could be a problem. They would need a permacultured system to feed from seeing as how the produce won't be available anymore. You have to have crossbred birds or a breed that hasn't had the clucky gene bred out of them (like the ones from the egg farms). Roosters are needed but are too noisy.
Maybe ducks, welsh harlequins maybe, would be the way to go. They lay more eggs than chickens and can live off crap.

For anyone who is worried about running out of toilet paper: - on page12 of “How can I be prepared with self-sufficiency and survival foods”, by Isabell Shippard, Isabell mentions two plants that she suggests growing; The Arla bush – Tithonia species, and Blossum Bouquet bush – Dombeya burgessiae.
I realize these bushes may not grow everywhere, but if it comes to a point where we run out of toilet paper, we will wish we had grown something that would replace it. Disease could be a major issue and many people who have lived a sheltered life will take the easy way out and just wash their butts in a stream and contaminate it. Some will tough it out and use anything available, and believe me, small gum leaves leave a lot to be desired and a lot not on the leaves.

Scenario:
Fellow survivor: Oh Denman, this soup is just divine.
Denman: Yes, I always try to put a little of myself into everything I do. :shock:

But then again, the sun will probably send out a big plasma burp and cook the bushes; so prepare for everything: Toilet paper, plants, seeds stored under the ground.

p.s. The subject of toilet paper seems so trivial, doesn’t it?

There was no such thing when I growed up, water fountains at the gas stations with compressed air too. Windows washed, full service, those were the days!

Still on the topic of toilet paper; I’ve built a thunder box (outdoor toilet) and I hooked up a hose to “wash off”. I suppose I’ll just have to stay gooey if the world freezes in my neck of the woods. :lol:

Great List and good starting point for me. I'm new to all of this but really feel in my gut that I need to prepare for something.
