    I hope this isn't the wrong forum for this post, and I apologize if it is.

    I have 29 meaties that are overdue for going to freezer camp. My FIL was going to slaughter them with me, as this will be my first time, but we've all got so many things going on that there just isn't any time - I'm worried I might start losing them if I don't take care of this soon. Is there anyone near Mt Sterling KY that would be willing to slaughter them for me for a cut of the chickens? Or does anyone know of a processing plant near me that I could take them to?

    I live in Hamilton, Ga. I would like to raise some CornishX meat birds. I would like to hire someone to come and butcher and process the birds. OR take them somewhere to be processed, I prefer someone coming out to my place then I am certain that I am getting what I have raised. I am willing to pay, trade for some meat and pay, or a fair share of the meat. Negotiable. Does anyone have any info or know anyone who provides this kind of service? Thank You in advance for any responses.
