How Many Mistakes Can I Make Learning to Butcher

Leave a comment Standard

I am hesitant to share this experience as butchering an animal is still foreign to me but an opportunity to practice butchering presented itself to me (Rhaegar scared a chick it went into shock and died) and I would’ve been foolish not let the puppy go to waste.

Count how many mistakes I make

Butchering Practice


  1. Didn’t tie my hair back
  2. Scalding water was too hot
  3. Knicked the intestines
  4. Cut the neck from the wrong side

I have watched many more butchering videos and intend to learn from my mistakes. Harvest day is in a few weeks. Wish me luck!

Happy Flocking
