I am thinking about raising my own cornish x for meat but I can place an order with some local Amish. They will order the chicks, raise and process them for $6.50 each. I would think it would cost me about $10 per bird to feed and have them processed at a cost of $1.50 each. I don't have the equip needed to process them myself and considering the time it would take us, 1.50 is worth it to me. So what do you all think?
