    Hi! This is my first time raising chickens besides helping my mother with her flock when i was a kid. My chicks are coming in early may. I'm getting some layers and some meat birds. I'm having trouble finding a local butcher here in my area (southwest area of Michigan). Any help would be great![​IMG]

    Thanks, Bonnie

    Try to find an Amish Farm, we have an amish man that butchers for $2 a bird. You just drop them off and pick them back up in an hour or two. You just take a cooler with you and have ice in it and he does the rest. Hopefully you can find an Amish man.[​IMG]

    Try your local extension office and feed store.
    I learned to do it myself by putting an ad on craigslist, and a nice man showed me how. - be careful.
