My husband and some friends of ours decided to raise our own chickens this past year. Honestly, I had very little to do with it. But from what I hear it took a lot of hard work and money. By the end of May, my husband and our friends undertook the task of butchering the chickens. Luckily being pregnant and working that weekend, I was able to skip this process. By the end of the weekend, my husband and I had acquired 12 chickens. On Monday, I decided to cut my first whole chicken.
My mother-in-law has shown me twice how to cut a whole chicken. But I had never done it solo. So I grabbed my sharpest knife and my victim. After watching a few how-to youtube clips and cracking bones, I think I did a decent job. The chicken tasted very good and my husband said it reminded him of home. Only 11 more chickens to go.
