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!
