    Do you want to grow out a bird or just get one to eat? You might be able to get someone here to sell you a finished bird. They can freeze it and ship it to you.

    There is a website called localharvest.com that you might be able to find someone close to you. Craigslist is another option. Good luck!
     
  4. Thank you both for your answers.
    I'm not ready to raise meaties, I'm wanting to try/taste one before I make the decision.

    Is there a farmer's market near you? If so, you might try there.

    I would post something in Craigslist, or ask around to friends.

    They are totally worth it :)

    You could ask at your local feed store or put a note on the board asking for one.
