Roosters are a crowing

We started with chickens this spring.  It has been a wonderful experience so far, but we have WAY TO MANY ROOSTERS.  It is time to get rid of them before the neighbors start complaining about the crowing. I have never butchered a chicken before and it is something that my husband does not really like to do. It ought to be interesting to see what happens.

We have three young children who think that the chickens are their favorite pets. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn new skills and teach my children. Am I ready for this?  Somehow I know that I will be OK. It is all part of the self sufficency process.

  1. I can't wait for that post! :)

  2. Wow... I don't know if I could butcher a chicken... I have a hard enough time killing the spiders. Definitely an area where my inner-hippie wins every time. :)
