Chicken Mummy – Day 2

Day 2 - cleaning off the mummy

by Shari, Saturday, July 17

Re-Salting

Today the salt mixture around our mummy-to-be was definitely wet – especially at the bottom.  Next conundrum: How do you take a chicken-turn-mummy out of it’s wet (rock solid) salts and ziplock bags?  Very carefully!  I had visions of a leg or wing popping off as I was holding on to it through the plastic bag.  We had to chisel the salt mixture out of the middle of the bird.  But it was a successful operation and said mummy bird is now relaxing in it’s 2nd salt mixture.  (It didn’t look much different from yesterday, and thankfully, it didn’t smell either!)
