Catching Up The Chickens

In preparation for butchering day tomorrow, this evening we caught all the meat birds and corralled them in the horse trailer. It amazes me how much smarter we get with each passing year...
I used to spend a lot of wasted time chasing, catching and carrying the morning of and now we just back the trailer to the processing area and let the butchering begin. Not to mention the birds are much easier to clean being that they have not had anything but water for 15 or so hours.
We have 47 to butcher this go round and will be selling most since we have another 25 to do in about three weeks. Thankfully tomorrow promises to be cool and a bit breezy. Perfect processing weather!
