So yesterday we processed 9 turkeys and 4 ducks. Here are some pics: 35lb live weight BBW tom. 26.25 processed 40lb processed weight Giant white. Bourbon Red- dead hen This is the Tom from the first picture. Stringing up the 2 bourbon red hens. Husband and BBW Lucky our giant white preparing to meet his doom. Catching Lucky the 60lb live weight turkey. 2 BBW hens preparing for gutting. Our plucker. It did AMAZING! Preparing the water in the scalding pot. We ended up having to elevate it on blocks because it was just too cold outside to heat up sufficiently with the heat stick. All the pictures are out of order but owell. That was our Sunday. We had friends come over to help. 4 men and 2 women, including my husband and myself. The men did the catching, killing and plucking. They'd then bring the birds inside for us to eviscerate. They did 2 at a time when the turkeys were small but as they got larger we were just doing one at a time. My girlfriend and I had it down to a fine art. I'd cut off the oil gland then move and do all the neck work while she cut open the cavity and took out the guts. Then she'd clean the giblets up while I got out the lungs and washed the bird. Then we'd bag it and tag it. We were working quicker than the guy. Though they had beer so I'm sure there was a lot of standing around. We have some video of the plucker in action but a friend uploaded it to Facebook and I'm not sure how to get it to share here. Same for a video of us gutting the BBW Tom. Owell. We worked for 7 hours. Quite the long day. My back aches!
