    My friend and I processed 4 or of 9 roosters today. It went well. This was our first time.
    We got a little tired of plucking ( I may not have had the water hot enough) and decided
    to skin 3 of them.

    Now I am a little braver. [​IMG]

    You will get better and faster, great sense of self reliance when they are in the fridge and on the table.

    Grats! Yes, once you pluck a few by hand you see why people want to build/buy/beg/borrow/steal pluckers!

    Quote:Yep. Right now I don't have enough to do to make it worth the expense.
    I am looking forward to cooking with my own chickens.


    I hatched them myself.
