We were going to butcher the chickens ourselves, but thank goodness, DH changed his mind. We found a place about 30min from us, that only charged $1.50 a bird! At first we weren't sure how we were going to haul them. Then I decided since I was going to build a chicken tractor anyway, I'd start with a chicken trailer. We bought a 4X6 landscape trailer, and built a pen on top of that. I'm pretty proud of it. Hubby put on the screening, but I built the rest of it. I have to thank my brother for teaching me woodworking through the years! When we got the chickens back, they were beautiful. Some of them weighed 8lbs. dressed out!!
