Processed my first chicken completely on my own start to finish today. 37 week PP cockerel who decided to attack my daughter dressed at 3lb4.9 oz no neck, A bit on the small side compared to my other pita boy who is about 10 weeks older and looks much nicer and on par with his CLB hatchmate who is easily as big as he was. Maybe now the crowing competitions in my back yard will settle down.
Had to pluck by hand but wasnt as bad as I thought. Took me about 2 hours start to finish.
Congrats! I haven't done that since I was a kid. Can't say that I miss it at all, lol
