If the answer is no, you should probably click away from this page now. Because I am GOING to butcher a chicken, just for you. Actually, I don’t show the killing, just the chopping. If you are familiar with how one butchers chickens, you will know that my skill is not that of a world class butcher. Feel free to give me pointers, but please don’t yell at me for doing it wrong, I am well aware of my amateur skills.
Mr. Pilver took the smellier job. He killed the birds and skinned them out in the hot sun yesterday. I used my pregnancy card to stay indoors away from the heat and the bees. And then he got stung, I felt terrible. I have, in the past, done every part of the butchering EXCEPT the actually killing. I cannot slit throats, it’s not in me. People sometimes inquire if it’s really gross or difficult. No, it’s not. The only thing that is truly unpleasant is that the bodies are still hot when you work with them. Not at all like the refrigerated meat you buy at the grocer. Alright, blah, blah, blah, I am growing tired of my own writing. Let’s make some meat for the freezer!
