We had a Cornish X go down in the legs a few days ago. We kept it alive until this morning and got set up to butcher. This was our first one and we decided to do just the one to get comfortable with it. I wouldn't do the killing but my husband did and from there we just followed the print out we printed out from here and it went good. We learned a few things along the way but overall I am comfortable with how it went. It was about a week and a half from 56 days and dressed out at 3 1/2 to 4 pounds.
