“Harvesting” Noodle & Dumpling

image

Today we butchered Noodle and Dumpling, two mixed breed roosters we had penned up seperate. My daughter did them both by herself. I only stepped in when needed on the first. She did great! She’s now roasting one for dinner and the other is soaking in a brine solution in the fridge.

That opened up their portable pen for the four jersey giant/buff orpington chicks that have outgrown their brooder. And now the brooder will either have the buck rabbit or Mama Chickies babies if she rejects them for any reason that is if they make it. We switched her eggs with two buff orpington and one leghorn cross egg. One is trying to hatch right now. I’ll keep you updated.
