I have to say that I am excited and nervous about the work involved with our processing day tomorrow of our first batch of Cornish. Our roos are about 8 lbs live weight and the hens are about 6 1/2 lbs so we are planning on processing the roos this weekend and the hens next weekend. We have a batch of 24 a bit heavier in roos. Hubby has four chickens he has processed so far and I have aided in the plucking side of it along with moral support ("good job honey" etc....) . Tomorrow I "plan" to "try" to do atleast one bird from start to finish with the aide of DH who is an avid sportsman - large game and small game hunter. I have never killed ANYTHING but I think that this process I am ok with. I have been inspired by other women on this board who have shown me just how they can "get 'er done!" lady style . Hoping that I can do it!
