    I had lined up (bribed) dear mom and dear dad to come over Saturday and help me butcher 24 white rock hens that are approaching 3 years old. I thought Monday I was noticing feathers, well this morning when I opened their coop it look like sever chickens just exploded, white feathers EVERYWHERE.
    Hopefully come Saturday morning they won't be full of pin feathers or dear ole dad is likely to pluck me instead.
