Our First Time . . .

The time came to harvest - read slaughter - our first rooster.  When acquiring "hens" from Harbour Island we inadvertently included a young rooster.  We had not raised him from a baby, we were not emotionally attached: we had no excuse if we wanted to call ourselves farmers.  We isolated him overnight with lots of water but no food.  We slaughtered him on Thanksgiving day.  I took a LOT of photos but will leave out the "gross" ones :)  Look closely at the kids faces - that is the best part.
