    Well the time has finally com and we are doing the deed this weekend YEAH!!!

    There will be 3 of us, hubby killing and plucking and me and the neighbour cleaning and packaging.

    Hubby thinks I being a goof because I said there will be a pot for the gizzards and one for the heart & livers. I don't want anything to go to waste so I will clean and keep the gizzard for soup (I hear they make great soup) and the heart & livers for the dogs. Now I found out my summer student's parents own a chinese food restaurant and they are taking the feet.

    i will let you know how it all goes down
