Yesterday was butchering day. The day that the broilers went from pen to freezer.
Thanks to my Whizbang Chicken Plucker (from Mr. Kimball’s (over at the Deliberate Agrarian) plans) and a sharp knife processing is pretty much a breeze. Kind of a messy, slightly bloody breeze, but a breeze none the less. It gets easier once you’ve done a few hundred or so too.
But all that is now done. Finished. For this time.
Now I’m ready to start all over again with a new batch of chicks. So if you are in the area and would like some tasty, homegrown chicken (rather than that nasty, “plain gross” chicken from the store) please try some of our PotterVilla Pastured Poultry.
For more on the chickens check out the link above, or visit our website pottervilla.net where we also have info about all of our other PotterVilla Associates services.
I guess you could say that this has been more or less of a infomercial post :-) [Brought to you by PotterVilla Associates!]
