    It has been mentioned it would be nice to have a list of people willing to help out with processing or teaching someone how to do the various steps, not as a business, but as neighbor helping neighbor with maybe a small fee to cover expenses. This would be up to the parties concerned. I'd like to throw my hat in the ring and get this started. If the moderator prefers we don't do this, please just delete the thread.

    [​IMG] Maybe we could have one rolling long list by state in your original post so that people can still add themselves to this list by posting a reply, but may also refer to the easy to follow list up top? Welcome to BYC, Richard. Nice post!

    I have nothing to do with this place, other than have heard of it. Apparently they have a full set up and folk there to help you if you need it. They will show you what to do and teach classes as well.

    I am perfectly happy to teach people how to process but due to USDA regulations, I can't allow people to bring their birds to our farm for processing. If anyone wants to come learn how or ask me to come to them, I would be more than willing.
