    Don't know where to post this:
    I'm looking for someone to teach me how to process a chicken "hands on" or if you know of a processor near Durant, OK.
    I've already read several books, watched many videos and tried once with an aggressive rooster, it didn't go well at all. I need someone who can actually work with me to do the processing.
    Willing to pay a fee or trade for some of the birds.
    Please send me a PM if interested.

    Oklahoma?
    There's many folks who post on this section from that area of the country. So I'll give you a ***bump*** so this post stays near the top for today...

    Personally, I'm a bit far to come teach - but know this....most of us make errors and learn from our mistakes.
    I thought I had a pretty good handle on it all - but I've misplaced my 'magic' pair of processing scissors and cannot find a replacement! I'm not sure I'll be able to cut the lower legs off without that pair of scissors! I've got just 6wks to find a replacement!
    So please know, we all keep learning - that's the beauty of this forum!

    Have you tried asking in the "Where am I? Where are You?" section?
    Maybe someone from nearby will see it there.

    I'm close to Lawton and would be happy to help, when we next do processing.

    I'm way too far away, but the link in my signature has been given some pretty good reviews as a how-to.
