    Just some local info

    With some help here I was able to find a new Amish butcher shop in Burke NY. They are near Chataguay in northern Clinton county.

    Miller & Sons, 1146 Coveytown Road. 518-483-7607

    They charge $2.50 for chickens and $4-8 for turkeys

    Quote:Looks like a poultry processing would be a good business to start in NY. The drive from the capital region would be about 3-4 hours. You would be up to about 10.00 a chicken if calculated feed, processing and gas.

    Thanks for the information! I heard about this butcher but nobody seemed to know his name. Now I can get serious about raising meat birds![​IMG]

    I did get a hold of them and am taking my birds up on Wednesday (they do chickens on Wednesdays between 8 and 12 if I remember right.) I don't believe there is a minimum, I am taking 11 and the man I spoke to said it would take about an hour.
    I forgot to ask how much it would be, not that it really matters, it needs to be done.
