last of chicken

We try and end chicken production so that we have a break between chicken and turkey processing. Not so this year. For a myriad of reasons, we are just processing the final batches of chickens now.

As we wait what seems like forever for them to get to size, the reality is they grow pretty darn quickly. We will stock our freezer with at least 25, to last until next summer when we can have them fresh again. Some of these birds are big, and others are right on the mark at 4 pounds.

As the temperatures drop, the job of getting the birds processed grows increasingly less attractive. It will be cold next week and the week after as we finish this up, icy fingers will be the norm.
