    this is my first Meat Bird experience.. and I'm a vegetarian, but my family is not. I think it's important to be responsible about the foods we eat. I'm hoping to sell/barter about half of the birds, and process the rest... i mean have someone ELSE process the rest. Squeamish. [​IMG]

    Call around, check with other local farmers.....ask at the meat shop. You have enough, most places around here won't do less then 25 and charge around $3 a bird. I never have that many so I'm stuck doing the deed myself. lol

    Did you check out McMurray's special on Cornish X? I believe that and the pearl white leghorns are 20% off for the next 2 weeks July 5th and 12th? It's a good deal if you like those 2 breeds of chicks​
