We got an oportunity for an all expenses paid trip to Oregon for six days.We had 21 6 week old Cornish X and noone to care for them on short notice.We just baught a 95 pound lamb from a neighbor that I butchered. Available Freezer camp accomodations were 14" x 14" x 12". Only me to do the deed within 4 days.So, how does one go about to reach a solution?Results: I started with group of 3 beheadings and dismemberments of draw and quarterings ( deboned the breasts, legs and thighs) then I boiled the wings, necks, backs and carcass meat off the bones. Average meat carcass weights of the 21 was 5.055 lbs. with the average weight of the bones was under 1 pound each. I packaged the meat plus liver, gizzard, and hearts into serving size portions in freezer baggies. After resting in the refrigerator for 2 days, I managed to fill the freezer camp reservation space with just over 16 birds, made 2 meals out of one and we gave the rest to my daughter.
