Meat processing plants in Indiana that do chickens?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi, I got 4 EE roosters (11 weeks old) that I would like to get rid of. I tried Craigslist with no luck so far.
It looks like I will have to eat them. But the is no way I can get myself to do the deed (my husband is a wuss as well roll).

Does anyone knows of a processing plant that will do it for me in Indiana (south or middle)?
Or have other ideas how to get rid of them?

2 daughters and a hubby, 1 dog, 1 cat, and chickens: Easter Eggers, Brahma and Polish.

Thank you very much!
Cambridge City may be a little too far to take 4 birds for processing, but it gives me an idea to look for poultry farms.
What is the minimum number of birds you can bring?

Thanks for the information.  I will have to call them to see if they would do ducks. I have tons of ducks. I was going to try to do it myself, but I have never killed anything before.

Thanks, augustmomx2, for that info.  I made a Word document of your post.   I'll need it if/when I raise some meat birds.
BTW, Cambridge City is 50+ miles east of Indianapolis, e.g.:
1.  Head east toward E Market St    
0.1 mi
2.  Exit the traffic circle onto N Meridian St    
302 ft
3.  Turn right at E Ohio St    
0.8 mi
4.  Continue onto N Pine St    
0.3 mi
5.  Take the ramp onto I-70 E    
54.6 mi

6.  Take exit 137 for IN-1 toward Hagerstown/Connersville    
0.3 mi
7.  Turn right at IN-1 S    
2.8 mi
8.  Turn right at Historic National Rd/E Main St/E National Rd    
0.9 mi
  
Cambridge City, IN

Breathes there a woman with soul so dead who never once looked up and said,
"Gee, what can I do for Joe Bryant today."

I have been to their place. Easy to get to off of I 70. Very nice people. They were processing when I was there. Very clean and organized. No ugly smells. If you call leave a message and they return calls after their work day is done.

I wanted to see the facility before I made a final decision on raising meat birds for the first time. I don't think I can process. But I've not seen it done in person, only videos. Meaties will have to wait till next year.

Anyone  in the Indy area:    if your going to process soon I would like to watch or maybe even help.

While I was there I purchased frozen birds that they had raised and processed. I thawed and cooked one that weekend. Goooood!!! Lots of meat and moist.  Thats the taste I was looking for that is not in a store bought bird.
