Killing, plucking, and gutting chicken, not for the sqeamish
    #2305074 - 02/05/04 03:24 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Kill your chicken (this is a young cockrell), by holding its legs
in one hand, and its neck just behind its head, wih the other.
Pull untill taunt, with the legs higher than the head.
Then stretch untill the neck pops apart (you can clearly feel this happen)

hang by its neck for an hour or so, so the poop and
wee drain out.

Then talk your fine wife or girlfriend, into plucking it :grin:



This is easyerly done by placing the bird into warm water for 20 mins, then plucking in the water. This helps the feathers come out easyer, and stops them
flying all over the place, as thewater keeps them heavy. We are lazy, and dont do the wings (their the hardest part to pluck)



Then you have the fun job of gutting him. First i remove the feet, with gardening s?cateurs, then the head and crop. This is a hard part, and its best to follow some other instructions here, as i always fuck it up :tongue:

Then open up the arse to the rib cage, and removeanything you can pull off from inside.  :crazy:





Then, we are to lazy to pluck wings (we are beginers in all this) I cut those off last.


Then wash it as well as you can, running water through the inside
untill clean.



Stuff a large peeled orange up its arse, with a few black currents.



Stick it in a pan, pour 1/4 of a bottle of fruity white wine over him,
a quarter of the orange mashed up, a few more black currents, a splash of
balsamic vinegar, and drizzle some olive oil over it.

Place in the oven......




when cooked, get out and carve.

Thne, eat, but share any bits you don't fancy eating with your best friend :grin:
He also gets the head neck and edible innards, boiled for half an hour.






I do this, as i keep chickens,and they hatch at a 50/50
ratio hens/cocks. But you can't keep to many cocks, and no
one else wantsa them. I also sorta feel it justifys my meal intake.
As unlike too many, I do understand the process of meat from
life to plate.
I do not enjoy this (apart from the raising and eating part) but
it's part and parcel of the hobby.

Do you save any of the innards for consumption? I know chicken heart is actually good and I think there's some other good organs.

Let us know how the chicken turns out, looks like good eatin'!

Would you mind going into more detail about keeping chickens. Like how many you have, how much it cost's to feed them, how you keep predators away, etc... It's something I've been thinking about trying to do for a while. I'll probibly set something up once I get my own place.

Looks to me like you did a good job.  Nice clean cuts and all.

What happened to the breasts?  Your chicken has got large legs but no breasts. 

Just like my X  :lol:

Thats awesome :thumbup: I plan on getting some chickens down the road and these instructions will definately help me out.  The only birds I've cleaned are grouse and pheasant oh and a few ducks.  I don't like duck so I stopped shootin em.  When it comes to grouse I always step on the wings and pull on the feet and whammo you have the breast/me wonders if this works with chickens.

if ever you decide you really want the wings [though they do not have much meat on them at all] you can try this:

skin the wings from the shoulder to the last joint of the arm [this is a bit easier tan plucking, though still a little tedious] then cut the meat and tendons around this joint and break free, this wing tip had virtualy no meat on it at all anyway. disgard the wing tip with the skinn from higher on the wing. presto, you have a verry slimm pikin's wing still attatched with less hastle than plucking. either warm of cold water bath will help free the skin from the meat by either softening or congelling the fat, i forget which it is [one makes it easier, the other makes it harder].

that's one tasty looking bird :laugh:

ps. i never bother carving a chicen, i just pick it apart. it more fun that way.

I saw a TV program a while back about cultivating chickens and they said that certain breeds were far better eating than others. They had a blind taste test at the end and one particular breed came out tops for roasting, taste, plumpness, juicyness etc.

Got any breeds you'd recommend?

River side cottage? :grin:

Yeah, most breeds have some good trait. for eating I recomend
Wyandotte, I only have 2 left :grin:



The grey spotty one is a Wyandotte, you can also see rocky, the one who became this meal, he is the small white bantam cock.


i'll do a thread on housing, feeding, ext for those interessted.

ganga,
you really shouldn't
feed you're dog the
head and neck,
because chicken bones splinter and can puncture you're
dogs insides.
beef bones are the
only bones dogs should be fed.
just a heads up.
my parents have
7 dogs this is why I know this.
peace,
zero

I have heard that a million times, from my wife.
My dog eats the whole carcus(sp?), every single bone, and has
eaten at least 50, in his 2 year life. no problems at all.


I liken this old wives tale to fish eating, every now and then
some one chokes to death on a fish bone, we still all eat fish.


P.s thanks for the consern though, its just not something i subscribe too.

Slight word of warning though, my dog is 45 kilos, and
eats trees and rocks for fun  :rolleyes: I wouldnt do it
with a rat dog, or dog only used to dry food.

You sound just like a friend of my parents.  He had a large (probably over 100 lbs) Black Lab that he always fed chicken bones.  I personally heard several people warn him about it, but he always laughed it off.

One day we had a BBQ. :crying:

Nice chickens!  My sister has a bunch of hens up in Oregon for their eggs.. they don't slaughter them though (.. not yet, anyway) :grin:

About feeding chicken bones to dogs.  Perhaps your dog can handle it - but it is true they break in nasty sharp pieces and my other sister's dog started choking on one one day four years back or so and my bro-in-law started the heimlich on the two year old, 40 lb. husky/shepard mix.  Thankfully Mischa coughed up the piece shortly thereafter - but my bro-in-law was pretty worried for a bit :crazy:

Anyways, my take is better safe than sorry - but if you think your dog's cool with it then by all means.  Oh, and did I say... nice chickens :tongue2:

Here's a pic of Mischa, taken this past December:





My other sister's hens (also in Oregon):





and hell since I'm postin' pics, here's some shots of the Oregon landscape :biggrin:
