    Well I was really naive to think I was going to wake up Sunday morning, grab a little breakfast and then get out there and get all the chickens done by noon. HAHAHAAAAAAA what a laugh!

    We set up our 'processing station' the night before and then I didn't get started until almost 10 a.m. So the steps were to catch the chicken and kill the chicken and let them bleed out - that took about 5 minutes. Then scald and pluck them - another 5-6 minutes...but the part that took so long was cleaning them. They were smaller birds, so my hand BARELY fit in there to clean them out. I started out using vinyl gloves but ended up just tossing them and getting in there so I could use my fingernails to help.

    Too much info? LOL! I think it ended up being like 20 minutes a bird and I did 15 all by myself. There is nothing like the smell of an open body cavity on a hot summer day.

    But now I have chicken in my freezer to last me a really long time. The power plucker drill attachment was nice, but I think it would work better on birds with a larger surface area - maybe cornish or cornishX? These little leghorns (probably dressed out to 3lbs) could only benefit from the plucker on the chest and back and I had to pluck wings, tail, armpits, legs, etc.

    There are white feathers everywhere - I don't know if I will ever get them all picked up.

    Snakes, chicken plucking - neither sounds like fun!

    Back at the office today. Ready for another vacation, lol.

    My son is 8 years old today. Amazing.

    Hey everyone 12 days till we meet a few of you. Anyone coming from out of town and need a recommendation for a hotel let me know.
    I would gladly allow a few at my house here in Collin county but the former tenants were taken advantage of by the neighbor , he took their down payment even though he knew he was in foreclosure.
    So I at the age of 53 have roommates .
    At least for the next couple of months.
    We also need to set a time of arrival for all and maybe a place to meet up and get the thing rolling.
    I will bring the Tshirts and kctop and I will probably be wearing them.
    I might wear my yarmulke so the group can be seen from a distance for all the stragglers. That will be a sat. And everyone will wonder why if I am that religious and wear the thing am I not at worship?
    I am for meeting at the Old South Pancacke house first then going to Will Rogers.
    Also if we stick around and eat at a local resturant remember it will be Sat night and we might need to make resvervations if we have a large group. Shalom

    We're excited to be coming up .. I'll let ya'll pick the time and place and we'll just try to be there .. otherwise, we'll find you!

    Dba .. is your yarmulke neon orange or something.. ?? How would that make us seen from a distance otherwise?? *snort*

    So, DH is feeling a little out of sorts that I've made plans for TWO days .. so we might have to compromise a bit. Meeting up with ya'll is a must .. seeing dba's horses on Sunday is also a must.

    So I told DH that we would meet up, visit, and spend some time at the horse show (which will bore him to death) and then slip away that evening for some "us time" and do something he wants to do. Then church on Sunday .. and hooking up with dba and whoever on Sunday after church. We might even get out in time to show up at kctops church or something .

    But we'll iron all that out as we go ..

    Really looking forward to meet y'all ...

    Tg/deb

    I found out last week that our town will be having our Celebration of Freedom on June 29th. Since Kitten and I ride in the parade every year, I won't be able to join the meet up this time. :(

    I will try to attend the next one for sure!
