Well today I shaved my Aussie. I don't know if he feels cooler or not, but I guarantee there will be less dirt in my house.
Then I ordered this: Power Plucker to help me with my adventures next weekend. There is such a need for it out this way - people to process chickens - but I guess the amount of work involved (even if you had your own fancy drum style plucker) still doesn't make it worth getting paid only $3 a chicken. So that's probably why I can't find anyone and probably why the meat shops here quit processing them, too.
Oh well - this should be interesting!
