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?
