30 pages later I'm getting caught up on BYC. Wing was asking about processing costs.
Both places I've used charge according to the age of the birds for chickens. These are prices from a few years ago, so you can probably charge more now.
Chickens up to 6 weeks old (Cornish X ) $1.50
Chickens 6-10 weeks (cornish x) $2.00
Other chickens $2.50
The idea is that the young birds are easier to process than are old roosters, etc. If the age is unknown, or if the chicken is anything other than a cornish x, then ehey are $2.50 each. One place sells ice, the other expects you to bring your own. Either way, birds arrive in chicken crates, and leave, unwrapped, in my coolers.
Ducks are $5.00 each and turkeys are $4 to $8 depending on size.
I vacuum seal them myself when I get home.
