This really is just a bird site. I PM you a link when it's done.


Don't forget there is a "Other Pets & Livestock" forum here.  You could always post the link. MissPrissy has a link to a blog about processing a Ram. Shouldn't be a problem.

Let me second the motion that everyone should have the lung scrapers.  That's the hardest part for me as I can hardly get my hand in there.  After a long day doing it by hand, it feels like your fingertips have been rubbed raw over a washboard.

Great thread!  I have wondered about an ice water bath after scalding, before plucking, to prevent skin tearing, but I'd heard that would make the feathers re-stick.  Do you have any problems with that?  Does anyone else cool them before plucking?

I reallt thoughtthe cooling bath was great. I always end up tearing the skin no matter how gently I do it and then I just got POd and quarter it out.

Great Job!!  Looks like a dismal day!

We have a sustainable community near by that does seminars, going to a bee keeping this Saturday. They make extra money and get extra hands for labor, doing the seminars. You sure would be able to teach one!
 
How long does it take you per bird?

I sure would like to see the deer tutorial when your done.
