    I went to their open house. Its really nice. And I like the people who work there. One thing to know is that do not have freezers. So its fresh only. That means you have to pick up the next day as soon as your birds are ready.
    I plan on taking my first batch of the year there to give them a whirl. I really liked what I saw. Chaudry's has a grinder and so I will still take my turkeys there, but if the chickens look nice then the Pilot Plant will get my business!
