    We butchered our first chickens today. It took us 3 hrs to do 5 birds. Three weighed 5lbs and two weighed 6 lbs. Two of them were my son's reserve Champion Meat Pen Chickens.

    For some reason I didn't expect them to look like you would have purchased it in the store. [​IMG] Don't know why! [​IMG]
