We have laying chickens, ducks, and guineas as pets, but want to raise some meat birds this spring. DH and 2 of the kids are vegetarians and one of those kids has a real problem with me doing the processing here at home, which is a nit daunting for me anyway since I haven't done it and am confused about some things like how to scrape out lungs etc. So i was thinking that a perfect solution would be to raise them and then bring them on to someone to process, but I've looked in the yellow pages and on Craigslist for "chicken processing" and "meat processing" and don't find a thing. Anyone know where I should look? I live in the country in Upstate NY and I would think it would be available somewhere....maybe I just need to wait until the right season? Also, how much do you think I would expect to pay per bird for processing chickens, ducks, turkeys? I was think 25 chickens and 2-3 turkeys to start. I just want to make sure I can hire this out before I go ordering chicks and get stuck! Thanks!
