    We were watching the Nation Geographic channel show on the Hutterites of Montana and they showed the colony killing and cleaning chickens. My oldest daughter turned up her nose but I reminded her that every chicken she has ever eaten had to go through that process either by personal hand or by factory machine. It’s too easy today to forget where our food comes from. Boy is she in for a surprise when we have our own chickens and it’s time for the family to learn a new skill.

  2. Your picture confirms for me something that’s been niggling at me with my own broilers – are they feathering less than they used to a few years ago? Many of mine look much like the guy above – kind of patchy in the feather department. I plucked a couple by hand last week for our own use and found it to be a much faster job than usual, too. I thought at the time maybe I’d finally just got the knack of it, but I think it could be there’s just less to pluck.

    We raise heritage breeds, I am envious of the lack of full feathering in the crosses, a tradeoff.
