So, our neighbor gave us 2 chickens recently... it was one of those "they were so cute, I had to get them for the kids for Easter...." then they got big, messy, and smelly... so Ricco and Scissors came to our house, and now they are giant white blobs waddling around the pastures. It has been several years(like close to 20) since I have actually gutted and skinned anything. Since we are only doing 2 birds this time, I am thinking of just skinning them. Hubby will kill them, and then I will clean and skin them. Any tips out there? Thanks!
