Today was a busy day. We took our remaining broilers to be processed today. They were running a little behind schedule so the kids were out playing when I realized that two of my girls were watching the chicken processing!!! I was worried that it would prevent them from ever eating whole chicken again. I made one of the birds for dinner tonight and I admit to being a little hesitant about taking a bite. It was different since we had raised these birds from birth to death.
We also put up our years worth of sweet corn and shredded zucchini. My oldest two girls helped this year. Again I was reminded that they're growing up. My oldest was able to shred all the zucchini while I was cutting the corn off. My second oldest was changing a diaper and helping put our youngest down for a nap!
We only have two more days at the fair. Thursday is auction day and then our journey of raising meat birds will be officially over. I am so proud of my son. He has done everything with raising these birds. I never even touched one of the chickens!
