November 2014 Hobby Farm Update
We have chicken! It’s been busy since my last update. The weekend before we went on vacation last month, we all got together on Saturday to process our very first chickens. I think we were all a little anxious starting off, but quickly got into the groove of things as the day progressed. Thankfully, several friends came to help watch the kids, prepare meals and help suppress any other chaos that was going on that day. Also, a good friend of ours that had processed chickens in her childhood days came to lend us a hand and show us any tips she could remember.
Nine hours and fifty chickens later, we were done! It was tiring and there are some things that we will do better next time around, but I can’t complain one bit. I’m so thankful for good like minded friends to help and support us as we figure this stuff out for the first time.
If you have any questions about our process or want any more details about how we raised and processed our chickens, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll be happy to help in any way that I can.
