After having the privilege to care and raise a batch of chickens, the “reward” is this special day. Photos below from 2014 Broiler Butcher Day. It is a humbling experience to go through this process. With help, we were able to clean and package 25 broilers in about three hours.
Maybe not the most pleasant overall process but it makes one stop and think where our food really comes from. As for a packaged chicken without a breast? Jacob donated a number of breasts to our local High School fund-raiser for Breast Cancer Awareness.
