To improvise

Last Thursday it was quite windy, cold and wet. We needed to do some butchering of chickens and turkeys so we set up our little processing station inside our dump trailer. This kept us out of the wind and reasonably comfortable.

The little red trailer is used to cart the live birds in from the pasture where they are kept in the movable pens.

Normally the dump trailer is used to haul paper and cardboard once a week to a recycling facility in a near by town. That's why it has tall sides. Makes for a great wind break. Sometimes you have to improvise.

Nice set-up. My wife is acting like the Queen of Hearts from Alice In Wonderland running around yelling "off with their heads", whenever she hears about chicken chopping time. It's not a pretty sight. Don't worry though, we lock up all the sharp instruments and we replace them with harmless rubber movie grade axes and knives and we run away from her like we're scared. A couple of days and she's back to normal.

Howdy Toon,
Sounds like Mrs. Goon needs to get out of the city more often and go visit her friends up north! ;)

Ain't that the truth.

Looks like you have an easy setup and a plan for the wind factor. YEAH!
