Here Chicky-Chicky!

On Saturday we went to our friends to butcher our 25 chickens... it was our first time and it was quite the experience! 

Thanks Schlabachs!!

I'm sure it's delicious, but the whole process getting there isn't exactly my cup of tea. :-D I prefer to buy my meat all ready to go! Sounds like ya'll had fun, though! :-)

Ooh fun!!! My little bro is showing 2 hogs @ the county fair this year. One gets sold to the market and then my fav. one, John Boy, will more than likely be the one to be sent to our butcher...I'm trying not to get really attatched! Olivia

I hope to one day break free from my city living and experience a chicken killing in the flesh in Iowa with the ever famous Chmelar family. :)
