Well, the time has finally come to process our first round of meat chickens. The timing couldn't be more perfect seeing as how we just ate our last scrap of chicken out of the freezer last week for dinner. This year certainly overall was very different than last year's experience in terms of growth and overall behavior. This year I also tracked all costs and weights down to the penny to allow me to get a better grasp on how much I am paying in the end per pound. It was a successful season, and as I expected, I am beyond pleased with the quantity and quality of the birds. We will process the second round in two-three weeks but we are looking at an overly stuffed freezer full of pastured raise poultry to get us through the next year.
