|black laced red Wyandotte capon candidates|
These two will get their feathers plucked tomorrow when it's daylight, which should give them several hours to chill out again afterwards. Also, a suggestion from my online mentors, after hearing about my continuing difficulty locating the right place to cut, is to stretch the birds out more to elongate the gap between rib and large thigh muscle. It will also make it more difficult for one to get free like last week.
These two are line-jumping in front of the broiler cockerels mainly because one of them did the kazoo noise this morning. I'm not sure which one did it, since both looked utterly surprised and even shocked that strange sound came from one of their beaks.
Oh, I'll wait for a nice pretty day to get a pic of Azar and Spikey (and their harem!) in the new digs. It may be after the boys are either caponized, or dinner. Third time has got to be a charm.
