Processing Day on the Homestead

Earlier this spring I hatched out twelve chicks. Unfortunately two were lost to a feral cat, and of the ten remaining, seven were cockerels! We opted to keep two of them, a pure bred blue cooper Marans, and the offspring of my sweet Betty Boop who we lost earlier this year. We were very fortunate to have help with the process. We are fortunate to have help with a lot of things! Honestly, without our friends and neighbors, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

Here is a video documenting the day. It wasn’t designed as an educational video, but could certainly shed light on what processing day is like.
