    Now the real test would have been if you cooked it for your buddy....could he eat it after filming??
  5. Ya know, thats just it . . .

    He was a major enabler of me getting all these animals to eat, it was always "found this-or-that on Cl, Ill drive", or " your jack russell killed the cornishx, lets go- Ill buy new ones", or my favorite- "Ill help you clean em" . . .

    Then, come processing day . . . hes nowhere to be found!
    Wont answer calls, wont answer texts, doesnt stop by like any other day . . .
    I had to trick him today as far as video subject matter, but I think deep down he knew what it was gonna be and figured it was time to face up to it.

    But Ill give him this, . . . he will eat the [email protected]#* outta some home-grown poultry!
    I did 5 quail today, including this video one, and Ill cook em up on thursday . . . he will be here for that, Im sure [​IMG]

    Whatever, hes my buddy . . . what am I gonna do . . .

    I hate to admit this but... I turned a little green just watching. When we processed our first batch, dh did the actual killing while I entertained a friend's kids inside, then I did the cleaning. The cleaning I can handle but the killing... geez... it seems like it was struggling FOREVER. Does it always take that long for the nerves to quit firing? Do humans behave like that when they die suddenly? The movies always show them going suddenly very still...

    Sorry... guess I'm more of a wimp than I thought. I guess I'll get used to it though--I'll be watching next time.

    Quote:I told my kids that the turkey (well, thats what I was killing at the time) had a set amount of energy going round its body and when its head got cut off all that energy went bouncing round the body till it ran out and thats why it jerked and flapped like it did even though it was dead dead dead as soon as the head was off.

    Seemed to work for them because none of them have any problems watching or helping. Well, as long as certain ones dont get eaten lol.

    It doest seem to take aaaaaages to stop jerking round though, doesnt it? And people, no idea. I would imagine they do but tv sugar coats so much I cant see them being true to life on this one.

    Tomorrow four quail are coming to dinner (yummy) but a question for y'all. Should the meat rest overnight in the fridge or can it go from walking round to the frying pan with very few steps between? Am awfully tired so would rather not sort tomorrows dinner tonight *yawn*
