We had a chicken gut truck spill in Sylvester the other day and it reminded me of this song. Enjoy it, I know the folks in Sylvester didn't enjoy highway 82 covered in chicken guts ankle deep. They truck the guts from the kill plant to the plant in Cuthbert that processes it into protein for pet food. 


Don't know how I forgot to post the link, but I did. Can I blame the puppy for distracting me?

Walt,

Back in the day when there were live chicken markets my Grandmother would go to one, interview a couple that appealed to her and finally select one. The butcher would then decapitate the bird and flick it [that's remove the large feathers]. Grandma would grab it by the feet and carry it home. Then she'd have to "singe" it over the gas range to remove the pin feathers [boy did that stink]. Then she'd clean it saving some parts like the liver, which would become delicious chopped chicken liver spread when cooked and combined with rendered chicken fat, chopped onions and seasoning, and the gizzard which she used for something but I forget what, and the feet which went into the chicken soup and gave it it's distinctive flavor.

Today's mass produced super market chickens can't touch the flavor and tenderness of those chickens that were butchered that morning.

Can't help but think that your Grandma was the significant factor here.  As was the case with my Grandma's fried chicken.  Thumbs Up

Now you two are trying to put me up to no good. The neighbor has a yard full of chickens. Lord knows, I have killed and plucked cleaned a bunch of them. We used boiling water to loosen the main feathers, then dipped them into a second vat with wax floating on top of the water. That got all the pin feathers. Then gutted them, saved the gizzard, liver and heart. The rest was thrown into a vat of boiling water and cooked soft, then mixed with rice and fed to the dogs. We did about fifty at a shot. Did I mention that Pop was a butcher and meat smoker?
