2. Pray (Halaal for the Muslims)
3. Cut the throats
4. Bleed them
5. Scold them
6. Pluck them

All the 2860 were sold before Good Friday. The demand for birds was high during Easter.
Ebenezer is hoping for the next batch of birds to arrive on site by 4th May 2011. Let’s hope they do as well or better than the first batch.
