The Farm Journal

Have you ever butchered a chicken?

I have been beckoned by the chain smoking 75 year old German neighbor to come kill
her rooster. I feel that if Rennie could do it so can I.
After the slaughter we will pluck and fuss over it I guess.

I hope I can document this big event.

When I lived in Arizona I practically begged Counselman Elinski to let me butcher his chickens. I think he was warming to the idea, then cooled off. Maybe that is what ended our short beginings of friendship.

Anyway, I can understand that he didn't want to kill his hens. But Roosters are a different matter entirely.
Wish me luck.
