Meat Chickens-yum, yum, yum!

CAUTION: The following pictures show the process of butchering chickens.  For those who have weak stomachs, beware!

Friday, April 29th we butchered our meat chickens.  We did about 50 in four hours.  Here are some pictures from the day.
the setup

Ethan and Noah had Station #1
which consisted of catching and delivery the chickens to Mom and Dad...

From there Mom and Dad held down Station #2 where they killed the chickens, beheaded them, plucked them and passed them off to...

Station #3 where Savannah, Gram and I
cut off the legs and necks, gutted them, washed them, and put them on ice.


Jordan was busy babysitting, taking pictures, refilling out waters, and making lunch!
At the end we packaged them up and ate chicken for dinner! 
Actually, we went out to eat for Dad's birthday, but we really did have chicken!

  1. OK, so this is how you do it. Your set-up looks pretty professional! :) If we eventually get meat chickens and have any questions about them, we can ask your family!

    P.S. We all had a great time visiting your church on Sunday! :) We're thinking about coming back every month or so if we can!
