I found it pretty empowering. To see our project from beginning to end and to also know that our chickens were raised happily and had one bad day. I feel like we are further along on our journey into the homesteading world.
One question: I have heard that you need to let the birds sit for 3 days after processing before eating. But in the second part of the "respectful chicken harvest" video, she says that she may be eating that chicken for dinner. How long do I have to wait from the time I harvest the chicken to the time I can cook it up?
