Chickens…

The time has come……for us to take our chickens to the butcher.  I loaded them up into the crates alone.  It was a really sad time.  These chickens are so healthy and happy.  However, their soul purpose was to provide us food for the months to come (12 of them to be exact).

They are now in our freezer.  We did hearts and livers also (the gizzards are going to mom and dad) so we’ll see what I can whip up with them.

We have enough chicken now to have 1 whole chicken once a week for a year.  They ended up costing about $7/chicken not including our time.  Not bad for a free-range, “naturally-raised,” happy chicken.

Have a great day!

Adopting one child won't change the world; but for that child, the world will change.

I am the wife to my wonderful husband and joint care giver to the many animals we have acquired on our small farm here on the prairie. This is a bit about our life on our farm. We are striving for simplicity and self-sufficiency, determined to become debt-free, trying to live in tune with the natural cycles of this earth, and challenging ourselves to transition to a diet based on traditional foods. It isn't always easy, and we don't always succeed, but it is a fun learning process. Join us as we stumble through learning how to provide for ourselves, get off the treadmill, and work toward a simpler way of life.
