I live with my husband of 36 years on a 33 acre farm in Northern Kentucky. This blog is my thoughts on getting by, living as a Christian woman and anything else that I would like for my children and grandchildren to remember.

Okay, so we did take the easy way out and had our chickens processed at a processing facility. But, the processor did all 42 birds in less than 1 hour, start to finish.
This is what they looked like on their way out this morning. I found myself feeling a little sorry for them. But then I realize that their lives would only get worse if we allowed them to live any longer. Fortunately, we didn't see any broken legs or heart failure in the 7 weeks we had them. Their lives were the best we could give them, lots of food, fresh grass every day, and clean water. Cornish X are different than any chicks I had ever seen. Not that we had a bad experience with them and we will raise them again in the fall.
On the way home
They look beautiful. Clean. Better than any chicken I have seen in the store in forever. I hope they taste as good as they look. I will let you know how they turn out, and will be posting pictures of the packaging process.
