New lot of meat birds on the way

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Have you ever wondered what some of the operators of large broiler sheds do with the hundreds (and thousands) of dead chicks that they sometimes find on their hands.

If you eat supermarket chicken, you probably don't want to know.

Thanks Gary,

To that end I would encourage folks to checkout what the River Cottage crew and Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall have been campaigning about. They produced a TV series aiding the understanding of just where our chicken comes from in a very serious and straight up approach without all the silliness from the animal rights people. Really encourage you to take a look.

You might have trouble getting the 4 tv episodes (2008) - PM me for further comment if that is the case.

Hi,

The meat bird chicks have been in their new outside quarters for the past few days......doing what meat chickens do.......eat....drink...poop....eat.....drink.....poop......eat.....drink.....poop.....sleep....and then repeat the routine several times per day.

Sometimes, they get up and think about doing something else......but then they just eat, drink and poop again.

Hi,

Spent the early morning processing 18 broiler chickens for the freezer. We got 35kg of organic, free range chicken meat and 1250 grams of hearts and livers.

This lot were nearly seven weeks of age. We normally like them a bit bigger but, when Jan says stuff's gotta happen, stuff's gotta happen.

Anyway, life's good (unless you were a chicken).
