Well we did it. Sunday night I brought 3 belts toms, 5 roos and 2 muscovies to the processors. I have gotten over the fact that they were going to be slaughtered but what bothers me is the fact that they probably felt afraid before hand. I hate the thoughts of the way the processor probably handles the birds before they are actually killed. My guess is rather harshly. When they have so many to do in a day I can't imagine they take the time to carefully remove the birds out of the crates. The worst part of it all??? I had to catch the ducks and chickens and run all over chasing them down. The turkeys came willingly. It just makes me sad. I know probably the only way to remedy this in the future would be to process them myself. Then I could control the way they are handled right up until death but I know I would be to grossed out to eat the meat if I even saw the process. I guess I just need to get over it.
