Humane, Home-Scale Chicken Processing | The Homestead Atlanta.
Chickens are a great resource for the homesteader and farmer. Not only are eggs a wonderful and delicious source of nutrition, but hens are also an invaluable addition to any garden through fertilization and pest control. You may also find a nice source of income selling eggs, or if you have the room you might want to raise some broilers for yourself and others. Either way, knowing how to humanely dispatch a bird is the greatest dignity you can give the animal before it is harvested for food. We will teach a couple of different methods of slaughter and then we will teach you how to pluck and eviscerate the bird so that it is ready to go in the pot. Each participant will go home with a pastured, humanely-raised bird. Click the link above to register.
