    I don't know how far out on the island you are, but if you are on the eastern area there is a USDA processor in Paterson, NJ. A USDA inspector needs to come and test your flock for avian flu and you have 8 or 10 days to have them processed. If you are too far, you might try calling the nearest USDA office in NY.
    Good Luck!
