    I'd say get those girls... to help you butcher the remander. [​IMG]

    Do you have any experience in processing your own chickens? If so this would be the way to go. Think of all those chicken dinners you will have.

    Oh Brunty, I just could not kill those chickens. I dont even kill rats.LOL! We set live traps for everything. I am not a animal rights person or anything I just cant do the killing. I want someone to come get them and never tell me what happen. I'll pretend they are living "happy ever after".[​IMG]

    I understand... [​IMG] Maybe a processor close by? Or does this still count that you know what happend to them?

    I just hate that you spent all that money and time for someone else to reap the benifits. Think of all that yummy chicken [​IMG]

    But again I understand. But $5.00 for a live broiler is a normal price if you would take them to an auction.
