I guess we're moving out of the "wanna-be a hobby farmer" category, with the recent butchering of our four roosters.
If you're faint of heart, ignore the following series of pictures. But for those who want to see how Joe skinned the cat (or butchered the roosters), here you go... It wasn't exactly pretty, but it did work. We dined for two nights on the fruits of Joe's labors.
Skinless breasts might be the way to go next time. Plucking was not a favorite part of the routine for Joe and William.
