    So, after worrying and worrying about getting too attached to my three Cornish X, Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, it went very well! I did not do the killing, but I had no problem taking out the guts and plucking, like I thought I would. And now they are in the fridge!

    I am just really happy about how well it went, and I am excited to taste my "home grown" meat! And happy the first processing was a positive, interesting experience! [​IMG]
    Thanks for listening to my ramblin! [​IMG]

    Good job. Some fret about that first time, others don't. Sounds like you did well.

    Enjoy.

    You did good by starting with 3. My first go round was with about 40! My son and daughter showed at a county fair....I processed the ones that didn't make show. It took me forever! I did it in 2 days. But we enjoyed the meat for a couple months. Glad it went so well for u!!

    That is WONDERFUL to hear! I'm glad it went smoothly and excited for you and your chicken dinners to come! Now that you know you CAN do it....how many are you planning on next time? Once those 3 are gone, your freezer is going to feel VERY empty [​IMG]
