Today my son and I killed and cleaned two rooster all by ourselves. He killed, I cleaned. This is something I've been wanting to do for along time so I wouldn't need to keep bugging my husband about putting birds in the freezer for me. It went smoothly enough. My son did a great job killing the birds on his own. I called a friend that has done this before to help me through it. So, with my friend on the phone, kids and dogs watching and knife in hand I started the first bird. I gutted the first bird so we could eat it whole. The guts smelled so bad. I almost puked a couple times. I didn't gut the second one. I just cut the meat off of that one. To make a long story short....I'm very proud of myself for doing this. I'm also proud of my son for being willing to jump in and help mom. WOO HOO!!!!! We did it!!!!!
