What do you usually pay to have them done? Hubby wants to do the butchering himself, but he is a cheapskate. I am a wuss that can't bear to kill anything, can't stand the sight of blood, and has no desire to pluck, skin or gut a chicken. I have no problem eating animals, I just have to mentally disassociate myself from what they were. Plus, I have visions of blood and featehrs all over my kitchen, and I don't want to clean it up! So, is it completely impractical to take them in to the locker and have them done there? Will I end up spending as much as if I had just bought the birds from someone else?
