I'm in the home stretch of my current batch of meaties. Last night when I was feeding/watering them, the title of my thread was running thru my head. We have decided to try and butcher this batch ourselves on Saturday. This will be our first try at butchering. Luckily, someone posted a few links to Joel Salatin videos, which has been a great help. After watching the videos about 20 times, I feel confident we can do this. It will be very gratifing to be able to raise broilers from start to finish. Wish me luck!
