using the rolled up wire to let them bleed out in. And yes they do get blood everywhere. The last time I just held it on the block after it was de headed. Forward progress. Still room for improvement.@aart
the cone might be the way to go. Tho I would still most likely set it up outside. Actually saw a cool diy processing table with wall and cones and a sink that attaches to a garden hose. Maybe when I build a little work shed that'll be in the mix.
Never occurs to people to break down the turkey 1st. Great option to break tradition. Only pictures of me mid swing and after(left handed) processing pictures of friend(right handed).
Soon tho they'll be up. I'm still working up the nerve to focus on the er pictures.@Angie16hearts
your welcome and sorry about your unfortunate culling. These two cockerals were just getting unruly. I imagine the older a bird gets the more time it will have to build muscle tissue which might make the meat tougher. Look at how early meat birds are processed, partly by size but still. There is some muscle tension with beheading since your severing the nervous system. Not really a problem tho since you want to let the bird rest for a few days in the fridge. And with the boys I usually stew or roast(bit synical but those were their names) them anyways which further helps breaking down any toughness.@shodack
its pretty crazy how quickly I've started utilizing my right hand. And interesting how quickly I forget I'm injured when doing things until I hit the tips. The motor skills certainly aren't the same with the non dominant hand, which makes for an interesting time when trying to accomplish some pretty simple tasks.
Getting an early start to the day
Onwards and upwards
