Moral Support

I butchered a litter of rabbits yesterday.  It went about as expected.  I get better and better at the physical aspect of butchering every time - but it is, psychologically, still very difficult.  Thankfully my brother Seth, and a friend of ours, Andre, were there to help.  Doing an unpleasant job is always easier when there is help.  And not just in the misery-loves-company way.  So . . . thanks, guys.

In other, not emotionally wrenching news, we decided to tan the hides this time around.  The rabbits are a bit young for tanning, but we’re going to try it anyways.  Right now the hides are soaking.  I’ll post updates over the next couple weeks at different steps in the process.  We also saved the livers and kidneys to add to pork sausage, and fed the heart and lungs to the chickens.  So we used just about every piece of the rabbit except the intestines, head, and feet.  That feels pretty good - and it makes for a lot less to clean up.

    Dude, I just want to let you know, you inspire me. I don’t say that lightly!

    Hey, feed those intestines to the chickens as well… they probably just need to be chopped up a bit into little pieces.

    My chickens love all sorts of disgusting meat by products, fat, gristle, etc….

    They would probably pick the heads and feet clean as well if you leave em in there for a while (if you can stand to, that is…)

    chickens are brutal

    If I was 3 inches tall, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near a chicken.

  4. Nate Says:

    Yesterday we threw a worm in to the chickens, and I actually felt bad for it as it was instantly ripped to pieces by 6 crazy hens.
