Free-range meat chickens in fenced city yard? - Page 3

post #21 of 23

Lol, I live in white picket fence suburbia. A 6ft wood privacy fence does wonders. A shed for cutting and bleeding will do you wonders (I have an area behind my garage!). Privacy bushes and trees will do wonders. Also I pluck and gut indoors in my kitchen. It's really not a big mess. Trash can in front of the sinks for guts and feathers... Having running water is nice. I have pretty standarded two-sided steel sink. Just wipe down the neighboring counters with a bleach/water mix when you are done. I do it indoors because it's easier. I scald the chickens in my pressure cooker on my gas stove. :P And that way there's not guts laying around to attract predators, or feathers for my dogs to try to eat. XD

One robust Easter Egger flock, the occasional meat birds, two killer dogs, a garden, and more rabbits than you can shake a stick at!

Lol, thankfully I have a 6ft privacy fence, so I won't have to offend any neighbors! Although I may kill and pluck outside and gut inside just because I don't have an appropriate table outside and my counter is a much more comfortable height anyway. Haven't completely decided yet...I've got about 6 weeks to solidify my plans smile.png

You can get a nice white plastic game cleaning table with a little sink at one end which is about counter height, it folds up and stores easy and has a faucet in the sink which comes with a quick coupler for a garden hose. Sells for around 70 bucks online but I got mine in sale for around 45-50 bucks on sale from Menard's building supply store, pretty handy table for butchering chickens, cleaning fish or venison or whatever you have
