May is over and it was a full month. We have enjoyed a much cooler spring than last year, along with a lot of rain. On source I read said over 11 inches! The middle of may found our first batch of broilers ready to butcher. Starting early in the day, we butchered from 9-12 took a break and then finished from 4-7. With our amazing help from the Ulmers and the time saving speed of the plucker Scott built last year, we managed to do 88 birds in that time! Everything went really well and we have our next batch growing! Moses, our catch and kill man
