Well, today was processing day and our first time to boot. We didn't do the deed ourselves, we took our birds in to a poulty processor. It was a lot harder than I expected, I hated it. Of course, from the day you get the birds you know their fate and choose to go down this road. I told myself I wasn't going to get close to the birds; I'd feed, water and take them outside and that was it. And that was it but those darn birds come to really trust you and that's the part I never expected or counted on. So I feel I betrayed them; I'm sure that sounds stupid but that's how I feel. I'm glad to have the meat and we will enjoy it and make the most of it. But this morning was the worse, knowing what lays ahead of them and thinking of them being stressed out as soon as you load them up and who knows what else once they were dropped off. Tough day! Thanks for letting me get this out.
