How do you skin a feathered chicken? I will be a newbie chick owner (of layer-a few dual breed) this week, and I don't think all of those eggs will be pullets . I've read a lot about and watched video of killing chickens and I *think* I can do it. I am pretty sure. Anyway, we toss chicken skin anyway, so I was wondering how you skin one with all the feathers on? I've never killed anything but bugs and what I've hit with my car, so I have nil experience. Also I think I will use a hatchet, is this ok? I might even get meaties in the spring (maybe,we'll see). I just don't want to buy factory meat, yk? Thanks everyone!
