I did it! Most of the McNugets I sold on the hoof, but I took the 6 remaining capons, 2 red broilers and a roo (from the McNugget bunch that I left intact as a test case) to the processing plant today. I wasn't sure what to expect but OMG it was the coolest experience EVER! Right up there with the day our hens laid the first egg and the day we pulled the first peppers off the bush. I didn't watch them in the killing room, but the rest I watched up close and personal. It was so cool being in the room with other folks that were directly involved in the meat making process. They were doing lambs and pigs and beef and chickens, it was a flurry of activity with men and women and children all taking part. I drove in with birds and left with food. How cool is that?!?!? The carcasses are sitting in their ice bath and I am getting ready to bag and weigh.
