I posted the photo of the cider so I could provide a warning.  If you do not want to see a dead chicken photo, do not scroll down.

Today was chicken butchering day.  19 roosters were collected last night and brought to Lynden Meats to “meet their maker” as Tom put it.  And they came back in packages, and all but this one (named “Dinner”) are in the freezer.

The older roosters and the hens are much happier today, having been terrorized by these roosters since their adolesence.  It will be a lot quieter in the barnyard now.

P.S. We will be at the Holiday Festival Saturday at Beau Lodge (17581 Wood Rd., Bow) from 10-4 selling our wares (Gotland-Finn fleeces, dyed Shetland roving and a variety of yarn skeins as well as apple pressing).  There are ~30 other vendors with arts and crafts as well as music and hot apple cider.

  1. Justice at last!

      Not sure about justice. The roosters are innocent creatures in all of this as well. But they were saved from being killed at the hatchery as new hatchlings so they were better off here for 6 months anyway.

  2. Are you going to eat “Dinner,” Donna?

    Hmm – taste’s like chicken… Let me know if you need more yarn to sell – I’ve got lots that didn’t sell at the Artisans Faire. T.

      Tom reports the chicken was excellent. I could use more yarn to sell. I have 3 skeins of dyed and about 6 of natural color is all. The Festival is tomorrow morning though. Let us see if we can coordinate something.
