Shoudl I feed my meat birds in the last day before processing? I know of some species you pull up the food. Also, I've never processed before and I'm getting a little wigged out. How long do you put them in the boiling water for? What's a boning knife for? Can't I just use a good meat cleaver? Do you take out the organs before or after plucking? Some of my brids have poopy butts. Can I just wait until we process for that or should I clean them up while they're alive?
