    More like my hubby did it and I helped, lol. We processed 2 of our Cornish today. My DH did the killing part (don't think I'm ready for that just yet) and he plucked the first one but it looked so easy so I tried the second one. That's pretty much all I did, lol, but it was a first time experience for me. I think the smell was the worse part, I was so worried about how I would feel doing this, at least part, that I didn't think about how it would smell, lol.

    This is the first one, he was big.

    This is the second, she was smaller. (Not quite finished plucking in this pic.)

    I may try to get my nerve up next time to do the second or third one all on my own. I was standing back some to make sure I wouldn't get my clothes bloody but even that part wasn't what I expected, not as messy.
