From egg or doe to table, learn about raising, keeping, caring for, and harvesting chickens and rabbits in your backyard. Learn to dress out a bird and/or rabbit to take home for another day’s dinner. Then see the next step up in chicken harvesting… using cones and an electric plucker!
Raising rabbits is the first choice of many homesteaders because rabbit meat is fairly cheap and easy to produce in a very short time. And it’s cholesterol-free! Sample some in Margaret’s infamous lapin pot-pie during our pot-luck lunch.
