I have already processed several birds myself. It never got easier, if fact each time I dreaded it more than the last. I do not enjoy doing it and I do not want to do it anymore. But I do enjoy the flavorful, healthy meat and I enjoy knowing that they have lived a good life. I am having a terrible time finding a processor. One place I called even laughed at me this morning.... I am located about an hour northwest of Knoxville, not to far from the KY border. If anybody could tell me of any poultry processors near that area I would very much appreciate it.
