Step-by-Step Chicken Processing (Video)


Butchering chickens from your own flock can be intimidating if you've only recently begun raising poultry. Luckily, chicken-processing skills are practiced today by modern homesteaders who value meat they've raised themselves. Planning a tasty, healthy chicken dinner for your family members isn't so difficult when you have the right know-how, and you'll find everything you need in this "How to Butcher a Chicken" video.

Taken from poultry expert Harvey Ussery's comprehensive guide, The Small-Scale Poultry Flock: An All-Natural Approach to Raising Chickens and Other Fowl for Home and Market Growers, the video is packed with step-by-step photographs and instructions for poultry processing. 

Beginning with an introduction to the basic equipment and tools needed for butchering chickens, the video continues with an outline of the best killing and plucking methods. You'll view birds in various stages of evisceration and discover how to remove oil glands and entrails — plus everything else you need to know about chicken processing.
