I did my first intentional processing today. I made lots of mistakes, let me share. 1: Knife was not nearly sharp enough. Next time, utility knife or exacto. 2: My homemade killing cone wouldn't fit his head. I was sitting there with him trapped under one arm while I expanded the hole. Twice. 3: I didn't know to let the meat sit for a couple days, so it was tough. 4: I couldn't find the artery. This might have been due to the poor knife? I finally bit the bullet and chopped the whole head off, because he was bleeding and scared but not bleeding fast. I felt awful. 5: Plucking took me longer than I thought. 6: Cutting around the vent was not clear, I couldn't figure out where exactly it was. 7: Lungs - how do you tell if they're all gone? We roasted him, and bubbly red came out. Is that a sign I missed some? My dogs liked the head, feet, wingtips and guts. What do you do with the feathers? Thanks!
