We had one of our cornish x's that couldn't get around anymore so we decided to butcher it. We went the skinning route instead of plucking and I couldn't believe how easy it was. We don't eat the skin anyway so I think this is how we're going to do the rest of our birds too. I'm so excited that we were able to do this. It wasn't nearly as heart wrenching as I thought it would be. I'm very proud of DH and my self.
