How long does it take you per bird?

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


Thanks for the kind words.

It was wet but not real cold.

We did 150 birds in about 6 hours including clean-up but that does not include setting up.

The How-To pictorials I post on the net are free, I like it that way.

Hey Frugal

A perfect place to post deer processing would be on Sufficient Self in the hunting section.  It is a sister site to BYC. You can click on it at the bottom of the page.

Thanks for posting this. Now I am more willing to try it. I was afraid I would skip something important before.

whew.

One day I'm going to try this, but I'm pretty sure I'll seek the help of someone who has done it already.

i liked the cone -- the bird did not flap for 2 whole minutes.

I make stock with the feet- just add them to the bones and veggies.  So much connective tissue and collagen- makes the thickest stock you've ever seen!

I don't eat the feet although they do in some cultures. I do as Rufflemyfeathers does, STOCK, the best stock!

When I was younger I raised ducks and sold them to better restaurants in our tourist area and in the NYC area. I had standing orders for 100+ ducks a week. One day a chef asked me what I did with the feet. I told him I threw them away. He made a deal on the spot to buy as many pounds of feet as I could deliver. Extra money in my pocket. After that, I sold CLEAN feet to many restaurants, often using them to market my birds (ducks, pheasants, smoked pheasant, game hens), my bunnies and whatever forage was in season! Everyone wanted them so they often bought my other products

If you're raising birds for extra money, most every good restaurant will buy your CLEANED feet for stock.

I didn't clean the feet prior to making stock, however- does that matter?  Actually, I "cleaned" them (scrubbed and cut off the toenails,) but I didn't skin them.

The chefs I sold to wanted the feet peeled so I've always considered peeling as part of the cleaning process so I peel mine.
