We started just a few weeks ago with these:
Which in just about 7 weeks turned into these (Cornish Rock):
But everything on the suburban homestead has a purpose, so two days ago they became these:
And last night was a neighborhood barbeque!
From 4 hens in just 7 weeks after processing, we had a full 20 pounds of chicken meat! We still have the carcasses to turn into broth which we will can/freeze for future needs.
As an added note, I will have to say that I am very proud of my wife who wanted to learn to process the chicken and did all 4 chickens herself. Good Job!
We are still fighting our county to allow chickens-if you would like to keep up with our struggle please check out our facebook group:
