I know, once you have the right setup and start processing, each bird only adds a little more work, but the setup and cleanup are significant.
It's not a bad little business for someone if they had the equipment and some training. This is the sort of small time, back yard business that we need more of, instead of boring people with minimum wage jobs that have no future. I guess I'm dreaming, I'd like to see a couple of teenagers in high school startup their own chicken processing business. Every few weeks, that take a Saturday and have people drop off their chickens in cages and a cooler with ice. I imagine they could make $100 for a few hours work.
Learn entrepreneurial skills and make a little cash by meeting a need in the community. I would gladly volunteer my time helping someone with the business side of this.
