Broilers are in the Freezer

Last week I included a picture of the broilers eating from the top of a 5 gallon bucket. I said I wanted to wait until I saw them without the feathers to fully evaluate them.  Well, here they are minus the feathers and they still look just as good. Most of this batch dressed out around 4.5 lbs, and they are nice full muscled chickens. They were also very active and foraged on the pasture well even at their mature weight. We were happy with them, and I think you will be too. Enjoy. 
I decided to spare you the "small scale chicken processing in Georgia is frustrating" rant. If for some reason you would like to read about those frustrations check out our email from a few weeks ago. The struggle is real.
