They Brought It On Themselves

Our first slaughtering of the new year is here!!  Woot woot!  Very pleased with how soon were able to do this.  We ordered Jumbo X's this time around and boy oh boy did they live up to everything the hatchery said!!  Usually we'd be slaughtering around Fall or Winter time but these big guys are already ready.  I'd say about 5lbs.  Solid.  Easy.

Now about this time I'd be getting nervous and feeling a lil guilty about having to butcher them.... but these guys are kinda mean....  OK they're really bad tempered!!  And they eat our eggs, and each other..  and well you get the picture.  No these are not flock rooster by any means!  My "King Shit", as I like to refer to him, has been with our flock since the get go.  He's in charge of all his ladies.  And does a darn good job of it.  But ever since the new boys came to town he's almost losing his King Shit status.  Not cool.  And Little Shit, his trusty sidekick cock, has been attacked.

I like to keep a cool vibe in the coop.  And for the most part it had been.  But these new roosters came into size and age.  They're trying to bully everyone.  It could be that we went overboard in ordering so many roosters, but cant cage them individually.  And Momma wants her meat!

Tomorrow morning bright and early, (U_U ugh), a slaughtering we will go. Hi ho hi ho.  I'm gonna try and get some good pictures but I'm depending on my camera phone now.  And its been a bit testy with me.  I need to break down and just buy a camera, but until then its what I got.

Hi! I just stopped by on FMF! Good luck with your roosters. I remember feathering and cleaning capons as a teenager. What a messy job, but the end result was amazing!
