I am attempting to breed my own birds, and now that I have a fairly decent sized flock of layers of my 1st generation, I want to cull the original layers. They are 3 year olds, as well as 1.25 year olds (23 altogether).
My poultry processor will pluck and quarter them for me for C$4.70 each, which isn't cheap. Plus they are quite a distance away, so added cost in gas and time.
I spoke to someone who has hunting dogs who fed them on chicken, and he suggested I just knock the bird out and put it in the freezer (whole), then cut it up as necessary when I take it out of the freezer. So his way costs nothing.
What do you do to prepare a chicken for a dog's raw diet?
