It has been a very long time....

since I last wrote on our blog. It seems that life over the summer and fall was just a very busy time for us and I rarely had any spare time.

Today we will be butchering the roosters. It is a bright and sunny day and the temperature is 0c, so it is not too cold. I have never done this before, but am excited in a way to be able to process and eat our own poultry. I have to go and dig up my big canning pots to scald the birds before plucking.

I'll post some pics later.

We are also prepping for the same except for our hens. We will be getting a new brood in the Spring.
