    We had a coop building party today, not very many people, but we got a TON done, and had a blast. Purplechicken, drumstick, moodusnewchick, and Henrietta23 came. Moodus brought 2 friends and Henrietta23 brought her husband James, and son Alex. Moodusnewchick brought four 9 week old cornish crosses to process. And those things were HUGE! Some of the meat birds we ordered where here so PC took 22, moodus took 6 and I got the other 22, we have 50 more coming in 2 weeks. We're planning on having a huge processing party. Maybe even a BYC sleepover [​IMG]

    The video- ( click watch in high quality )

    Don't know why the quality came out so bad, it looks fine on my computer, must be youtube.

    Ummm. The puppy pics don't belong here. Unless you did that intentionally
    cause he;s like a juicy little pork roast.

    Just a little question - was that cluckity cluck with a slight gurgle sound from the decapitated bird? Or was that coming from somewhere else? :eek:

    in reference to the video, of course.

    The cluck was from a prowling duck I believe.

    Thanks for the compliment but it was MoodusNewChick and PP who did all the
    work. I stood around watching with a beer in my hand.

    I sorta cringe as I watch that movie since me and Drum are being silly. I hope no one
    thinks we think culling is a joke. We just like to have fun with whatever we are doing.

    Is that a turkey fryer in the back ground that you are using to scald them with?

    Quote:Yes it is a turkey fryer. It works well because the top of the pot spreads out so when
    you dunk a bird you don't lose your water. The pot is also really big and the propane
    heats fast and is easy to control.

    Then when you're all don you can fry a chicken. Yumm [​IMG]
