Today was chicken butchering day. 19 roosters were collected last night and brought to Lynden Meats to “meet their maker” as Tom put it. And they came back in packages, and all but this one (named “Dinner”) are in the freezer.
The older roosters and the hens are much happier today, having been terrorized by these roosters since their adolesence. It will be a lot quieter in the barnyard now.
P.S. We will be at the Holiday Festival Saturday at Beau Lodge (17581 Wood Rd., Bow) from 10-4 selling our wares (Gotland-Finn fleeces, dyed Shetland roving and a variety of yarn skeins as well as apple pressing). There are ~30 other vendors with arts and crafts as well as music and hot apple cider.
