I have processed a heap b4 with my cousin. Not squemish as I grew up on a farm and had to butcher chickens, pigs,lambs and goats when I was in primary school. I dont enjoy it but if I am going to eat something I feel I have to be prepared to kill it.

Dianne I will keep about 30 for eggs to eat and incubate to supply my own meat. Need a few to start with as I can not sex them till 6ish weeks and I want about 25 females and 5or6 males.

Let me know if you need a lesson Doug.  Normally, you'd wait for 6-8 weeks.

Don't ask questions you don't want the answer to, Dianne.
