    40 to 50 of our broilers are ready for butchering. Wish me luck as this is the first time for me and I will
    be on the front end of the processing.

    We have 2 kill cones, a turkey fryer for scalding, a whiz bang clone chicken plucker (picked up off of craigs list for $200)
    After that, i get to hand the chickens off to my wife for the cleaning.

    After you've done a couple of birds you will get into the rhythm of it.

    Once you start to eat home raised chicken, you will be glad you went through the entire process.
