Last night I put these roosters in this little pen so I’d have them to butcher for today. I’ll not be showing any chickens getting butchered as there’d be no purpose in that. It’s just something I have to do and part of why I have chickens.
They had a good like up until now
I do three at a time. The hardest part I have to do is pull their innards out and clean them up. I’m not very fast at it and it took me all day to do 9 birds starting around noon.
Barry come by
My brother Barry came by to go up in the hills to cut some downed trees that fell across the roads so we shoot the bull for awhile, but I had to stay home to do my work.
Once I was done with the chicken butchering I take all the feathers and stuff and bury them in my blueberry patch and I’m done with that, except.
I did put a bird in the pressure cooker which gives me meat and broth for dinner tonight.
So now I have 8 more in the freezer that should last me for awhile. I still have a few more young roosters that need to grow a bit more before it’s their turn.
Noise is down
Just getting rid of these nine will let the flock settle down as these guys are just getting their hormones and have been tearing up most everything chasing the hens around. Already the noise is down around here as everyone around here has noticed.
I had a little time before dark so I did some chair hopping and enjoyed the evening and the nice sunny
day and now I’m going to enjoy dinner.
Nice day for me but not for some of the chickens. :O)
