Killing Chickens with Hannah

We let Hannah (3 years old) stay up from her nap today so she could witness daddy killing and butchering some chickens. She’s a little sensitive to some things so we weren’t too sure how she would handle this feat before her. Here, Hannah and Elisabeth witness daddy catching a chicken.

Hannah running with joy and elation after watching the first slaughter. See the chicken upside down in the cone in the background on the fence?

Hannah after the second slaughter… maybe having second thoughts?
One of our chickens. See all the fat? This was an old hen… they have much more abundant fat than the roosters. Daddy ended up slaughtering 6 chickens this day.

Here’s a few pictures of our chickens gathering together along the fence.
