The time has come……for us to take our chickens to the butcher. I loaded them up into the crates alone. It was a really sad time. These chickens are so healthy and happy. However, their soul purpose was to provide us food for the months to come (12 of them to be exact).
They are now in our freezer. We did hearts and livers also (the gizzards are going to mom and dad) so we’ll see what I can whip up with them.
We have enough chicken now to have 1 whole chicken once a week for a year. They ended up costing about $7/chicken not including our time. Not bad for a free-range, “naturally-raised,” happy chicken.
Have a great day!
