Batch 1 is just about ready. I'm going to eat every chicken in this room. Well. Not the Barred Rocks.
So we are at a little more than 7 weeks for Batch 1 of the Creepy Meats. A few of them are about to go to glory soon. Very soon. It depends on the weather but I'm expecting to have chicken dinner in my future.
The Barred Rocks we got with Batch 1 will soon go to live in the chicken house. But that is really going to freak them out so I need to get them used to the idea. We'll be having "How to be a Real Chicken" training over the next week. I've brought in some experts - some of the laying hens - to provide instruction.
You can pick out Batch 2 - the larger ones - and also the Buff Orpingtons.
Batch 2 and 3 are still in the brooder. They are doing great and peeping along. With the warmer weather they will have to be moved to a bigger pen and start getting out into the real world.
Happy Tuesday everyone! How are your meats? Creepy?
We're planning on a Fall Creepy Meat Fest. Got goats comming out'a my ears right now so no time for the CM's until later.
I would love to do creepy meats, but I think I would need them processed for me, and then I am not sure how cost effective that is. love the blog
Aren't you going to demonstrate "How to be a Real Chicken?" ...and I think you should post a video for everyone to watch... you know, in case we have a similar issue.
i'm laughing about goats coming out of your ears, Carolyn! ha!
actually, Lisa, it can be! check around. sometimes it's like $4 a bird. i know a lot of folks who do this and it works out really well. call around to "custom butchers" or contact your Extension office for processors near you.
Amanda, yesterday i was doing the chicken dance for them. i'm hoping it will work. i totes need a GoPro for these special moments.
