And They're Off

About three weeks ago we had our first processing day in the new Evisceration Station. I got talked into doing all 200 chickens that were ready in one day by the elder Tile Hooligan, and despite the fact that it is about twice what we would normally do it turned out great. All together we had 6 people working for at least part of the day, and three of them had never butchered chickens before. One of them is a vegetarian.

Anyhow, the new processing digs worked out great. Everything inside of it is completely washable and cleaning up afterwards was a breeze. The flow was good too, although we used to move through the process clockwise, and now the chickens move counter clockwise. I think we will all be able to adapt. Since it is in the back room of the on farm store we had a great place to set up the scale and cash register out in the store
