Buck Island Farm 
Chicken Day 2006

Chickens transported in antique crate

Chickens are humanely dispatched with a hatchet

then briefly "dipped" in scalding water to loosen feathers

Dennis and Benny Smith busy "picking" chickens - removing the feathers

Carr Abell butchering the whole chickens into parts

Chicken parts are washed then placed in containers prior to packaging

Chicken parts - small pots in front contain cleaned livers and gizzards

The only leftovers are intestines, heads, and feet
