Every year about this time, we butcher chickens. For the past three years, our daughter and youngest son have raised meat chickens for their FFA projects. After the county show, the chickens are to be butchered. It fills our deep freezer with delicious meat that we know was raised free of antibiotics, steroids, and were raised humanely. Plus, another added bonus is that the chicken is absolutely DELICIOUS!
I put all of the rubber "fingers" into the blade of the plucker. This thing rotates around and literally removes all of the feathers from the dead chicken.
Finally, after all of the birds were processed, we used a different process to bag the meat. These bags shrink when heat is applied. So, the meat becomes vacuum sealed in these bags to provide better protection in the freezer. They were fantastic! We'll definitely be using these again.
I hope you enjoyed the post! Have a super day!
