    We got up at 5:30am and got everything ready. It took 40 minutes to pull all the danged feathers out and only about 20 minutes to do the rest. I think we did a marvelous job. Here it is all cleaned and ready to go in the freezer.

    Great job! In the fridge for 24 hours. Then prepare for cooking or freezing will help make it tender.

    Yeah I bet if you turned the chicken around it would have a big furry back, like an ape.

    [​IMG] You are too funny! No it's not that bad. But I do have a question, I kinda feel sick to my stomach. [​IMG] I keep thinking I smell it (which really wasn't as bad as everyone claimed it to be). But I have a queazy feeling in my stomach, could it just be that I was so upset about processing a bird I grew to love? Or could I be sick from handeling it? Of course I washed my hands but maybe something got on me and got me sick. Could that happen? Maybe it's just the whole death thing. Will it get better? We have two more Roos to go.
