    Thank you for sharing 🙏🏻

    Will you ever do turkeys

  • Black Pack Homestead Chris and Marella Ogden

    I know when I harvested our Rhode Island Red males that my hand was so big to reach up in there. Is that common for the breed or that it was a male trait? These chicken were not small at all.

  • Beverly Bennington

    My mom use to hang them on the clothes line 60 years ago

  • Saprenna Mills

    Nice work! And I get such a kick from watching your helpers! I was around their age when I learned to help my dad clean ducks we hunted. Wonderful memories and great life lessons.

    You can tell I use to TA a dissection lab in college because I’m planning future comparative anatomy lessons for my kids while watching this haha!

      I have a few college AP classes under my belt but no other real biology education, just a fascination with animals and anatomy. I took my grandson on a hike on Mt Hood and we found scat. I don’t know enough to identify the animal but we concluded it was a predator a bit smaller than him based on fur in the scat and the diameter. I am hoping the state parks open their yurts soon so I can take him for a few days.

    After you butcher your first free range chicken you notice how
    screwed up the bodies of factory farmed chickens are.

    • UNATCO

      Organic chicken is gamey and they have strong bones the factory
      farmed chickens have under developed muscles and osteoporosis

  • Ginger Kirby

    I couldn’t help but notice, during your intro talk, the duck and chicken behind you to your right doing their best to stay under the radar LOL

  • Flemingsburg Farms & Community Workshop

    nice to see the young men getting it done👍

  • Joanne Ganon

  • Farmer Frank

    Thanks for sharing I’ve been looking how to process chicken.

  • Lisa Siembida

    I’ve followed you for a while. My family is Ag, but grew up in city. I love homesteading, gearing up with learning what i missed or didn’t want to do. At this stage, I’m ready. I was so squeamish in the beginning STILL, but damn you nailed how to break it all down 100% perfectly! Confidence growing. If the kids can…ugh. Thanks for all your knowledge sharing!

    • Homesteady

      Awesome Lisa, I made this video specifically for ones in your shoes, wanting to do it but still a little “squeamish”… I actually was originally going to call it “chicken butcher video for the squeamish “

    • Lisa Siembida

      @Homesteady That would of been a great title too. Either way, THANK YOU for helping us ‘get there’. ☺

  • Dewalt DIY

    You can still cut the head off in the cone with a knife that’s how I do it , I don’t slit I just cut the whole head off

  • Hidden Cove Farms - Ky Farm Life

    Very efficient from start to finish. Great job.

  • crayhack

    My herding mentor recently got a rooster because all but 1 of her hens had been killed. She’s said I could have most any rooster that she hatches to butcher. I’m looking forward to the possibility of actually getting to butcher chickens for the first time.

  • Nicole haskell

    Thank you so much for sharing I enjoy your videos my ten-year-old son and I have done all of our meat birds this summer we do them in small batches of about 6 to 10 Birds throughout the summer and fall and we do it all old school by hand.

    • Homesteady

      What a great education for your son! We did it that way for years! Keep it up Nichole!

    • Nicole haskell

      @Homesteady thank you we’ve been homesteading most of his life he’s definitely one of my right hand helpers even though he’s the youngest of the bunch

    If you’re a beginner, you should see the graphic part.
    Chicken butchering is graphic.

    Watching others butcher, and kind of desensitizing yourself to the “graphic” part is, in my opinion, more important than a lot of the technical stuff.
    The technical stuff is the easy part. You can look that up in a book.
    You don’t want to witness dispatch, and entrails the first time you butcher.
    The emotional aspect, and the gross aspect are the part that takes mental stamina.
    Killing, and gutting is the hard part.
    Many people may not realistically have a bunch of equipment, however everyone has to kill and gut.

    I use a milk jug, and pluck them on a string.
    It works. Didn’t cost a dime.

  • Julie Robinson

    what a great skill a young kid could learn! Smart boy!

  • Delta November

    Your kids are so much like you. Thanks for bringing us along.

  • Ana Larson

    Use those chicken feet for stock, it’s lots of great collagen very good for gut and general health. The dogs love it too.
