**Notes to self for next year**
Do Not buy the Bantam mix. LOL. Roos are sure pretty but I had a BBR that started crowing at 7 weeks. Um not going to work in the city!! He has crowed his last crow.
Make sure knife is sharp. I did sharpen mine on a stone prior but not well enough it seems. Will look for a thinner blade before doing the next few.
Helpful hints to anyone doing a small batch of little Bantie's like I did. I save a plastic Vinegar bottle and cut a small amount off of the cap area for their heads. Then I made a slice in the top of the handle so it would slide down onto the edge of a 5 gallon bucket. Put shavings into it to catch the blood. I couldn't find a bungie tie so I use painters tape for their feet. Taped them together and then to the vinegar bottle out of the top. I think this worked like a charm. Hope it helps someone else.
