So far I think this will be just about the strangest topic to date that I have covered. Frankly, I’m not even so sure why, I would be posting this to a wedding and lifestyle site, but here goes. In our house we are very much all about the hands on, do it yourself, how can we save money and maybe at the same time lead a healthier more environmentally friendly lifestyle. While we are going pretty good with the gardening and growing some vegetables here and there, we thought maybe it might be interesting to see if we could raise chickens. Needless to say at first it was all about the eggs, but then the natural progression was to see about what we might do with the chickens after they had matured and could we keep a sustainable chicken farm going. This was all just an idea really, but we started to do the research, turning to that wonderful resource the modern world has come to rely on – google.
For any and all of you who may have clicked on this link thinking that we were going to give you a terrifying blood soaked post about our chicken killing experiment, sorry to disappoint. Not really in to that. But we are going to share with you what we found.
This link is definitely not for the faint of heart… very graphic, but if you want the blow by blow of how to get from clucking chicken to tasty dinner it is the best reference I’ve been able to dig up that’s not a video – Kill and Butcher a Chicken.
