Help with butchering a chicken

1478 Views 3 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Vongruzzly
This Monday I'm going to butcher my first chickens ever. If you can help me, I would appreciate it. I'm wanting to gut them or skin them without having to pluke them because I don't have a pan big enough to scald them.
Can someone instruct me on how to do this? Also, as far as a knife goes, will I be okay using a razor knife?
Thank you,

The best tutorial Ive ever seen was on youtube from Custer Farms. That is how I plan on doing it. FWIW, Im getting the chickens in two weeks after I finish the coop.

Hope this helps...

There is a step-by-step tutorial here. I recommend it if you are at all squeamish; you can kind of ease your way into the process.
Hot water in a bucket should be enough to scold them for plucking.
