This was the sunrise on the 10th. Beautiful!
Wood that has yet to make it into the shed.
Honey and Baby aren’t impressed.
We’ve butchered 6 roosters since Saturday doing 2 every other day. Chicken and dumplings, chicken soup, chicken ? They tend to be a little tough so I’ll slow cook them. I asked Michael how often we could eat chicken before we get sick of it and he said “A lot!” It’s a nice change from pork.
Kalina just turned 13 and really feels she needs to learn more in depth about the processing part so here you go girly! :)
The end result. They’re not large because most are banty cross. My banty cross hens that I keep because they’re such great setters hid more than one batch of eggs last summer. Not what I would have chosen to hatch but they’re still good eating! I think we have about 15 or so to go.
This is in my living room. I think it needs to be dealt with…since we need the couch to sit on. And the chair needs screws replaced in the bottom. It leaves us a chair short at the dining table. Maybe tomorrow! :)
Time to get something to eat. But not chicken tonight! I think I’ll join Kalina and toss a tater in the wood stove to bake. And then figure out what to do with chicken tomorrow!
God bless and have a marvelous evening!
