Butchering days are upon us

I’m back from the hunting, but now engrossed in my ‘down-sizing’. Going to butcher a few ducks, some of the turkeys and all of the roosters over the next few days. Will get back to more regular postings next week. Gotta go light the fire!

  1. I’m interested whether you take them to a processing plant for butchering, or whether you take them out to your barn. =) This is something I have been thinking about as we’ve been making plans. Enjoy the fire!

  2. Let’s put it this way, I live 855 kms (521 mi), or a 9 hour and 35 minute drive, from the nearest licensed processing plant. Hence, I light my own fire (see butchering day: turkeys for a picture of the fire I’m lighting!) and butcher everything myself.

    Good luck with it all. I did 5 chickens about a week ago in the snow and it really did me in: I had to take a hot shower and climb in bed, I was so darned wiped out. I’m such a wimp! (Plus, our turkey celebration is in a week and a half so I have more butchering to do too.)
