| Hi everyone,
I'd like to hear from anyone who raises chickens for meat. I have 7 chickens
3 of which are roosters. I've raised them from small, but one of the roosters is
at the age of maturity and is getting so darn mean. I'm going to have to do something
with him. He is making life miserable for all the other chickens in the pen, and I have
only 1 good laying hen that gives me 1 egg a day, and I don't want her to be so
stressed all the time./ she's a sweetie. Since he's gotten so mean, she's looking
pretty ragged. I'd like to butcher him, he's HUGE. But I really don't know how to go
about it. Can anyone advise me on how to do it ? Thanks. P.S. We do
seasonal work (contracting) and income is less in winter, so I need to know how to
butcher the roosters when we need the meat in winter. I'd love to hear some of
your experiences and stories about this subject. I'm sure some of you have some
great tips and also amusing stories. Living & Learning... PeggieK
