Did it feel weird when you processed a bird or birds the first time? It freaked me out; my first processing was last week. I grew the birds from chicks and took care of them, then I ended their lives. At the time of harvest I was really upset about it, not crying but had a good touch of the nerves. I think I may have offered up a little prayer of thanks to the chicken for its life. Today I was telling someone about my accomplishment and they were quite freaked out about the whole thing. A week later, I'm pretty darn proud that I know everything those chickens ate. I know they got sunlight, fresh air and had happy little chicken lives. What about everyone else?
