    We are going to expand into meat rabbbits, but I need someone to process them for me. Just don't have the stomach to do it myself. Does anybody know anyone in the area? We are in Earle. Have a chicken processor, but they don't do rabbits.

    If you want to eat rabbits, it would make for sense for you to do it yourself. If you can not take the killing, may be you should not eat them?

    Thank you for letting me know that there was a prerequisite for eating meat. I should process my own meat, and make sure I can kill all of my animals. Apparently, I was under the impression that other people with more skill were unnecessary. I guess I will never eat meat anymore, because I can't process beef, pork, lamb, goat, chicken, turkey and fish. Thank you for showing me the light. I will now become a vegan and just hug and kiss all of the livestock and just write off the farm costs as a learning lesson.

    I was just thinking that you may be someone who was doing this to be more self sufficient and sustainable with the whole movement that is occurring. May be you should try doing it yourself to understand what you are doing and taking, to better understand what you want your role to be in the cycle of things. I was not preaching, or trying to get anyone to "see the light." Most people just feel more comfortable with the idea of eating flesh if they know what goes on and have the courage to do it themselves instead of passing the life to another to end.

    Sorry, I'm in OR so can't help you in any practical sense, but loved your response.

    My only suggestion is to use something like Craigslist or your local hunters association. Some of our youth hunters locally are willing to process farm animals for the experience and of course a little $
