    If so... i am very interested! Would love to buy some fresh farm raised birds.

    I would also be willing to hook up with someone that i could pay to buy/feed/raise and process birds for me. Can't bring myself to process the birds i have raised for eggs. I would love to be able to get fresh raised chicken on a regular basis.

    Please email me if you are interested, willing or able to do this.

    thanks [​IMG]

    Don't you have any farmers markets nearby? Most, around here, have one or two vendors with farm raised/processed birds.

    yeah, but there's no way i could raise them myself and then eat them knowing they were mine. I get way too attached. I love my girls! also, i don't have enough room.
    thanks though!

    Where are you in Mass? We use a processor in Bridgewater for our chickens, I raise the Cornish X and will have some going in to be processed soon.

    Quote:I think that Mass. has pretty stringent anti-local laws, so unless its under the table its really difficult to sell. At farmers markets you can see everybody hiding their stuff whenever an official walks in. But its pretty risky to sell poultry, you can get fined pretty good for that. Just more FDA bs...

    I know somebody who had theirs processed in lowell, makes sense with the large minority population, I'm not sure about the details though.
