See that roast chicken dinner over there (to the left)?

We grew him. (and the taters and the squash.)

And he was delicious!

Now I just need to assign #2 the job of building us a chicken plucker and I think we will put on a meat flock this next summer. I don't think we want to hand pluck 25+ chickens. It could be 50+ chickens if my parents get in on it. We have to get the right tools to make it go easier or just take them to a processing place. I will have to start researching the costs for both options.

Pee standing up! :) well, I could if we were outdoors and ...nevermind.

There is a lot I don't do these days. I don't do dishes very often anymore. I don't vacuum often anymore. I don't do laundry often anymore. I have assigned them out to children in the house.

I haven't done a big animal yet. And I don't think I will process my own hog or steer. I will send them out to processing houses.
