    Help! I just found out that the place I was going to use quit processing poultry! Crap! I did a web search and I couldn't find anything close, say within 50 miles.

    How stupid am I for not checking this out first?! URGH! Can you tell I'm smacking myself upside the head?

    I'm in College Station too, but if you really get into a bind, I may be able to help you out. I'm not a licensed processing facility, but I don't mind doing it. You may also want to check out the sticky post at the top of this thread about processing your own chickens.

    Good luck!

    Quote:I have been looking for someone to process chickens in this town. I want to do a run of meat birds but did not want to order until I have a processor. I want to learn but did not want to learn on my first run. I would be happy to help so i could learn. Do you charge by the bird or take a portion of the run. I do understand you are not licensed that is fine, these would be going into my freezer and no where else.

    Looking forward to your response.

    peace
