Plucking and Scalding

Pull and Kill

Honored Guests

We processed our first summer batch of Cornish Rock Broilers today. I'm not sure why I always look forward to processing day. Things were a little different this time than in the past. The BFF Gerri was busy doing chores of her own so I had to brave the feather frenzy with Shelly. Instead of standing at the plucker all day, Shelly opted to pull innards with me. We plucked the first one at 11:15am and bagged the last around 2:30pm. That's close to one bird every two and a half minutes. I'll weigh, vacuum seal and label them tomorrow, for now....I'm whooped.
