It’s not often that I get to write a post about teaching a farmer skill to someone else.  Most of the time I’m learning.  And screwing up.  And learning from my screw-ups.

But looky here.  I’m teaching my friend Andy how to kill, pluck (or skin, as in this photo–she wanted to keep the feathers) and gut a chicken. 

Processing chickens is a skill that is being lost as we slowly lose our grandparents.  It’s also a skill that in suprising-high demand.  Who knew? 
I like passing on a bit of knowledge once in awhile.  It makes me feel like a real farmer for once.
