    I hatched out some barnyard mixes last year and the boys are teenagers now and with hormones raging they are wreaking havoc on my poor hens.
    I decided enough was enough and figured it was stew pot time!
    Hubby and I processed four roosters today and will do the rest tomorrow.
    This was our very first time ever processing so it took us a while.
    Took us 45 min per bird.
    I'm just glad it is way easier than I had imagined!

    You will get faster with practice. Also, you will really enjoy home grown meat.

    I had only tasted "real" chicken once when I was living in Romania.
    They processed the chicken and made chicken soup that night.
    I thought I had died and went to finger-lickin-chickin Heaven!
    OH! It was the BEST!
