Okay. Got too many roos. Some have to go to freezer camp. Have watched the u-tube video where they hang them and dispatch the chickens. Some advise to just lop their heads off with tree loppers (<-loppers are where I'm leaning). IF we lop off their heads and then go to scald the birds, wouldn't water get inside them? Is it better to just slit their throats? Getting rid of the heads/eyes looking at me by lopping them seems good, but. . . .? And what temperature should the scalder be set at? rolling boil? We'd planned on using our turkey fryer loaded with water to scald them. Then, into ice, then remove insides (save heart, gizzard, livers), cool down, age in refrigerator for 2/3 days, then to freezer. Are we on track? Any tips on removing the guts? This is the first year we ever got day old chicks so we need to process some of them. We like home raised food and spent yesterday processing a deer, so we should be able to deal with our roosters. Thank you for your words of wisdom.
