This morning I butchered my first meat bird today at 8 weeks. It went rather well culled it with a pellet gun and bleed him out by chopping head off with ax. Got the water to a 150 degrees and dippe him for 30-45 secs. The feathers came right off by hand nice and easy. Cleaned him all up and saved the giblets. Let him rest in cold water to let him cool and into the crockpot he went. I didnt weigh him but i think he was about 7 or 8 lb. Cant wait to try him im psyched doing the rest of the roosters tomorrow.
