My store sells traffic cones and other safety equipment. If your local Hank doesn’t have them, they can order. I only say this because it can be hard to find them.

We butchered one time many years ago and it was a pain on so many levels. I love seeing the tools you use and your process. Thank you!

Comment on Late Summer in the Shop by Suzanne McMinn https://chickensintheroad.com/dailyfarm/late-summer-in-the-shop/#comment-175849 Tue, 13 Aug 2019 17:43:55 +0000 https://chickensintheroad.com/?p=64424#comment-175849 A few people have asked me about that, so I added a paragraph to the post about it. The time to gut is after the plucking and right after removing the feet, before you start cutting up the chicken–if quartering. If keeping whole chicken, you cut then you’re done, no further cutting up. So you don’t have to go back to find out, here is what I added: If you plan to keep whole chicken, you’re going to get up close and personal now with some chicken butts and pull the guts out and remove organs you may want to keep. We decided to just quarter this batch–cutting out thigh/leg pieces and breasts–so we didn’t even gut them. (You can quarter, carefully, without gutting.) Next batch, we’ll keep a few whole chickens. I like a few to roast whole through the year. When we do that, I like to seal up the organ meat, and neck, separately in a small bag and put it inside the bag when I vaccuum seal the whole chicken. I love using chicken heart, liver, gizzard, neck when making chicken gravy or stock.

I like spunky people who will not be deterred by someone else’s idea of what’s best. I am glad to see your posts again! I really enjoyed the chicken slaughter even though I am a city girl and will probably never do that. I was wondering about when in the process you remove the innards and what happens to them. My grandmother raised chickens, and I remember her going out in the morning to kill a chicken for dinner (lunch). Because I was visiting from the city, I was never privy to the process – the farm folks were afraid it would upset me! lol

I love to eat chicken and it is good to see how to properly dispatch them after a happy life with out undue trauma or mess.

I remember going to my grandmother’s and it was a very slow process to scald and pluck just one chicken for our Sunday dinner.
