I want so bad to start raising meat chickens. However, there are a few things I am afraid of. First, I am afraid I will get too attached. I don't kill anything. Ever. However, I eat meat so I feel a bit hypocritical. But then, I am a nurturer. I am afraid if I do manage to raise them and bring myself to the part of processing I will mess up and leave an animal terrified and in pain. This is something I could not handle. I have no problem with the thought of cleaning them afterward. I have helped process fish, deer, turtle...so no issues once it's dead. However, I also have no clue what to do with the extra stuff. The feathers, guts, heads... So anyway, is there anyone who has been THIS afraid and gone on to raise and process your own birds? Any words of encouragement would be much appreciated!
