Home Grown Chicken

In case you have started your own flock of chickens for meat, here's some good information on raising, butchering and storing:

Tastes Just Like Chicken

By Allen Easterly

So you want to raise some critters that taste just like chicken? There's no better critter than the chicken itself. Chicken has become the most sought after meat in the marketplace. Raising your own birds can save you a few bucks at the grocery store. Even more satisfying is the great sense of accomplishment that comes with raising your own food from egg to dinner table and providing this healthy meal to your family.

Raising a small flock of chicken tenders is relatively inexpensive, their care is not complex, and they don't take up much space. The birds are easy enough to rear that every member of the family can participate, from feeding to plucking to cooking, and of course eating. The birds you raise will taste better than store-bought, contain little or no chemicals or hormones, and live happier lives. --- continued at link, above ---

Image Raising quail is inexpensive, easy, provides very healthy low-fat white meat, and supplies the fertilizer you need for your home garden. The moderate start-up costs for raising quail are well worth it.

Under prime conditions, each female bird will lay about 300 eggs each year. --- continued at link, above ---

Chicken-How to Butcher

How to butcher a chicken in 20 minutes or less... ...while leaving the carcass and feathers intact!
http://www.backwoodshome.com/articles2/grim79.html

By Dr. Roger W. Grim, D.C.

When I was 12 years old Grandpa would let me help him pluck whole chickens after we had dipped them in scalding hot water in a washtub. That was the way he sold whole chickens to stores with his family business.

Image Figure 1. With a trash bag properly fitted around the chicken, clean up will be easy.

One day I asked Grandpa, "Isn't there an easier way to dress out a chicken?" He showed me a method with no need to pluck feathers and no smelly stench from a wet chicken. It's just a fast, easy way to put meat on the table. --- continued at link, above ---
