Cut resistant glove for chickens

cut resistant glove

We retired a few older hens yesterday and I used a cut resistant glove for the first time (Thanks Mom).

It feels safer than a leather glove and easier to clean.

Do you pluck the chicks or skin them? Which method is better?

Nayan --- We prefer to pluck if possible since the pastured fat gets lost with the skin otherwise. We did skin our ducks, though, because they were really, really hard to pluck. But with chickens, a power plucker plus a couple of minutes of hand work does the trick nicely.
