    The mobil processing unit has arrived. The birds are 11 week old cornish and are 8-11 lbs live weight, I am interested to see how much they dress out at. lets see how this goes. Who is first?

    Mobile processing unit? What a luxury.

    I'm butchering here today, but I have to do it myself.

    I would love to have the luxury of a mobile unit too!!!

    We have butchered 56 CX this weekend and I'm so glad it's done. I'm exhausted! [​IMG]

    Mobile processing unit??? Wow, we are lucky if we get a bookmobile every couple of years. I hear the amish will butcher for a price but I still do the duty myself.
