I'm not sure how long we raise our chickens. I'd guess 6-8 weeks. Last time we got them in July and butchered them in September or Ocotober. All I know is that they are really good. Last time we left them whole, but this time, we are going to try and cut them up, but I don't remember how and Shawn doesn't remember. We'll see how it works out. With 75 (minus the ones we lose), we'll get a couple cut up good.
Here's an idea that I would love to put out there. What does everyone think about having a family get together this fall? Hopefully Lauri and Elsie can come. They mentioned September. If they come, I'd like to have a family get together at Kaleva Island perhaps. What do you think?

would be a lot of fun but I do not know if we could make it being that we are taking a trip up there in may for a wedding and while we are are spend a weak or so up there. frans

sounds like a great idea ... perhaps someone can bring along a laptop and blog from the reunion??!! we are looking at going to alaska in july with the kids so minnesota in september probably won't work for this AZ family.

What we were thinking of is when
they get here, to have them stay
with us instead of in Motel 6.
We were going to leave early one
morning, go to Kaurala's for noon
time. Then stop in Iron. If we
had a reunion maybe we could and
they could stay in a motel. They
are going to be gone 2 weekends and
the week between. Gotta think more
about that. Mom
