So, I have 19 week old Sumatras, 3 cocks, 3 pullets. Hence the need to correct the ratio a bit. I'll be skinning them, so I'll brush up on technique this evening via youtube, etc. I've been trying to psyche myself out for this for months lol. Any points of wisdom from experienced processors? How important is the sharpness of the knife? Will an old kitchen knife do, or do I really need to go buy a new, good quality knife? I guess I'll go to HD for a construction cone, to do the killing in. any other tips? thanks!
