Mmmmm... Chicken!!

Today was the day. The deed is done. We now have 228.07 POUNDS of chicken ready for the freezer! Yum! We are letting them age overnight in the fridge/coolers.

We ended up with:

2 over 11 lbs (one is 11.75!)
1 over 10 lbs
10 over 9 lbs
7 over 8 lbs
3 over 7 lbs
2 over 6lbs
and one itty bitty just over 4 lbs. (She must have been the henpecked one.)

Guess what's for supper Saturday night. ;) And, we'll also be having home-grown potatoes, squash, onions and green beans!! Gotta love a supper that you grew yourself. :D


  1. Yay! Chicken!


    And all clean and nice with someone ELSE putting the work into it. My favourite!

  2. YOU KILLED YOUR LITTLE ITTY_BITTY ONE? The poor wee creature! Never had a chance to grow, and now she bit the dust. You'll have to cook her along with a big one, and just send her with Jeff in his lunch box, for a snack. One bite, and she'll be gone.

    Now, OUR itty-bitty one has a name (Clara) and has been assigned the status of pet. I doubt very much we'll be able to kill her. She doesn't cluck, she peeps. How do you kill a itty-bitty chicken who peeps, AND lets you hold her and pet her?

    Not I, said the Mom.
