Daddy and I spent the morning butchering the eight roosters that remained in one of the chicken tractors. Next time we will probably clean out the other one completely, four hens and all. There are ten hens left in the tractor we worked out of today. I don't know for sure, but I am inclined to keep them and see if they start laying decently.
Anyway, the dip-net sure makes catching those squawking birds a whole lot easier! I have already gotten fairly proficient with it. :)
We did things a little different than last time. Last time I scalded and Daddy ran the whizz-bang chicken plucker...then we both dressed the birds out. Today, Daddy scalded and ran the plucker while I dressed out the birds. Therefore, I dressed all of them, but one, which Daddy did when he got done scalding and plucking.
I still continue to be amazed at the size of these rascals!
